Who we are
One firm for expert advice in public affairs and corporate and financial communications
The heritage of GRACosway extends over five decades, with the founding of a firm specialising in advising leading Australian companies on media and issues management. Our public affairs practice commenced more than 20 years ago in Sydney, and has since expanded its footprint across each of Australia’s major capital cities.
As part of the Clemenger Group network of companies, GRACosway provides clients across a broad range of industries with a single reference point for their public affairs and corporate and financial communications advocacy needs.
Co-chaired by the Hon. John Dawkins AO, and the Hon. Helen Coonan, and led by CEO and Founding Partner, Les Timar, GRACosway delivers multi-disciplinary insight and solutions that position our clients to achieve their business objectives. We work on either a long-term or project-specific basis with blue-chip Australian and global companies, industry groups and the not-for-profit sector to navigate challenges in the political and corporate communications environment.
Our aim is to provide insight and advice that creates value for our clients. Combined with a commitment to great service, we have been successful in building lasting relationships with many leading companies.
GRACosway’s genuinely bipartisan capability in policy development and government affairs ensures clients are given the tools needed to improve the quality of their interactions with the public policy-making process at all levels of government in Australia.
As one of the country’s longest serving public relations firms, we work with our clients to help manage complex corporate and transactional projects, developing effective messaging and communications strategies that build trust with media, shareholders and other stakeholders.
