Emilie Isaacs


Auckland-based corporate and public affairs consultancy, Exceltium Ltd, has announced the appointment of a new senior consultant, Emilie Isaacs, who has joined the company from US government relations firm Williams & Associates, based in Phoenix, Arizona.

A British citizen, Ms Isaacs has wide-ranging experience in policy, advocacy, communications and grassroots campaigning both in the UK and in the US at county, state and federal level, working with clients in the healthcare, pharmaceutical, banking and finance, hospitality and law enforcement sectors. She holds a Master of Arts in Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) from the University of Oxford. In 2004, she was a regional organiser in Oregon for the Republican Party's successful Victory '04 campaign.

Exceltium Managing Director Matthew Hooton says that, with the changing political climate in New Zealand, Exceltium is planning for further growth in one of its core streams of business, achieving policy change. Mr Hooton says that Ms Isaacs' international perspective would be valuable in ensuring the company continued to offer clients New Zealand's most innovative public affairs strategies.
