As the principle communications advisor to the CEO and global Executive Committee, Redfearn is responsible for reputation strategy; corporate communications; financial communications; employee engagement and internal communications; crisis and issues management; campaigning and PR; category communications; and the corporate brand, from strategy to execution.
