Promotions for Tim Grey-Smith and Carina Tan-Van Baren
The Corporate Affairs team has also benefited greatly from Carina’s expertise in the health and aged care sectors.
“Tim’s promotion reflects not only personal growth, but also growth in our business,” National Director Karen Brown said.
“He has shown great commitment to achieving results for our clients – and with experience across the energy, resources, planning, property and local government sectors, his commercial acumen has been invaluable for them and for Cannings Purple.
“Tim’s knowledge of government at all levels, ability to engage and negotiate with a wide range of stakeholders and ability to build strong relationships have been key factors in the continued development of our Government Relations team.”
“Carina is providing our aged care clients with expert assistance in navigating the challenging landscape of the Royal Commission,” she said.
“Her attention to detail and work ethic have quickly been recognised within Cannings Purple and by our clients and other stakeholders.
“Carina brings a unique skill set and perspective to her role – with experience practising commercial law focussing on the property sector, at federal government level and as an adviser in a ministerial office, and having held a variety of senior journalism roles at The West Australian.”
The promotions are among a number of early-2019 changes at Cannings Purple, which include Karen Brown being appointed as acting head of our Government Relations team and experienced adviser Michael Cairnduff being promoted to the role of Director in Government Relations.
