Australia – Accenture, the global professional services firm for strategy & consulting, interactive, and technology, has named its new communications lead for ANZ, Therese Raft

Raft steps into the role as her predecessor Georgia Hewett moves into the chief of staff position to support Accenture ANZ’s CEO Tara Brady and the company’s executive team in ANZ. 

Raft will become part of Accenture’s global media relations team to drive its external communications in support of Accenture’s growth agenda in ANZ.

Raft most recently comes from tax and advisory firm, Grant Thornton Australia, as its national communications lead. Prior to that, she had also been the Australasia external communication lead of professional services firm, Arup. 

Commenting on her appointment, Raft said, “It’s a fantastic time to be at Accenture. The C-suite has never been as ready to have the conversation about technology and business transformation as they are right now. The way Accenture tackles practical challenges to also address issues around sustainability, diversity, and future skills – to deliver on the promise of technology and human ingenuity – is a unique story I’m excited to help tell.”
