Rosier will lead the firm’s Technology practice across Australia, which services a wide range of enterprise and consumer tech clients. As general manager of the Melbourne office, Rosier will draw on her broad consulting and cross-industry experience to support a range of clients outside of the technology sector, spanning financial services, consumer marketing, sustainable packaging and healthcare.
Brennan has a strong background in corporate affairs and communications in both the public and private sector, specialising in communicating and advocating for supply chain transparency and sustainable sourcing. His experience spans government relations, issues and crisis management, strategic communications, media relations and digital strategy.
Rosier brings more than 20 years of communications experience across Australia, New Zealand and the Asia Pacific region to Weber Shandwick. She has extensive background helping organisations to incorporate technology into their businesses in sectors as diverse as healthcare, government, transportation and energy.
Brennan previously held senior media advisor roles for both corporate and charitable organisations and is also a published journalist, as well as an experienced spokesperson. He is also a voluntary director for the United Nations Global Compact Network Australia, the local network that supports the UN Global Compact – a policy initiative for businesses that are committed to aligning their operations and strategies with principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. In this role, Brennan played an integral part in a major corporation’s re-entry to the Australian retail market and embedding ethical and sustainable procurement policies across the company’s ANZ operations.
