He has more than nine years’ experience in investor relations and financial communication in Australia and London across in-house and agency roles. Ryan has been involved in executing investor relations and strategic communication programmes for IPOs, M&A and capital raisings, and also has significant crisis management experience.
Peter Brookes, Joint Managing Director of Citadel-MAGNUS commented on the two appointments, which bring added depth to an already strong investor relations offering:
“Our Investor Relations practice continues to resonate strongly with companies seeking to go public, and listed companies looking for external support to augment their internal resources with objective, strategic counsel. The addition of Vanessa and Ryan significantly bolsters our team depth and expertise across a wide spectrum of investor relations services.”
Vanessa and Ryan will be based in Citadel-MAGNUS’s Sydney office.
