Andrew Hewett embraces new opportunity at World Vision
Andrew Hewett will join World Vision Australia on 1st July as its new Head of Media and Corporate Communications.
He brings over two decades of experience in the comms and media space to the team, having spent 12 years in senior communications roles for brands including Coca-Cola Amatil, Kraft and Reece Group. This followed a decade in broadcast journalism.
Andrew said he was drawn to World Vision because of its vital mission and world-renowned purpose of empowering vulnerable children, families and communities to overcome poverty: “My family is passionate about supporting the community and those less fortunate, which is one of the reasons that I couldn’t be happier to be joining the team at World Vision.
“It is clear the team has an aligned vision and purpose with plenty of rich and interesting stories to tell. I look forward to playing my part in raising awareness for the great work that is being done, locally and globally, to support and empower the vulnerable.
“Daniel [Wordsworth] and the team also have a strong commitment to the environment, climate change and First Australians which should rightly be a focus for us all. I feel blessed and highly motivated by this opportunity and can’t wait to get stuck in."
Interim Chief of Communications at World Vision, Elisa Iurato said: “Andrew brings a wealth of strategic thinking, with a strong focus on stakeholder engagement, leadership, communications and media training, in senior roles with globally respected brands.
"I’m really looking forward to Andrew joining the team as we continue to evolve the function and enhance the way we communicate the great work that is being done by our dedicated people around the world.”
