In an exciting update from the aviation industry, Singapore Airlines (SIA) has officially welcomed Talia Katz to its ranks as the new Public Relations Manager for the South West Pacific region. Katz, who will be operating out of the Sydney office, steps into the role with a wealth of experience behind her.
Having cultivated a strong background in both media and government relations, Katz transitioned from her recent position at Transurban, where she served as the Media and Government Relations Manager. Her accomplished career also includes pivotal roles at Western Sydney Airport as Media and External Affairs Manager, at C|T Group as Campaigns Manager, and within the New South Wales and Victorian Governments, where she sharpened her skills in media advisory.
The transition sees Katz not only stepping into the expansive shoes left by her predecessors but also joining a robust team. She will work closely with Public Affairs Officer, Jade Pearce, and draw from the expertise of partnership agencies—Liquid Ideas in Australia and Acumen in New Zealand—to bolster the airline’s public relations strategies across the dynamic South West Pacific landscape.
Against the backdrop of this appointment, SIA also bids farewell to Senior Public Affairs Executive, Erin Fletcher. Having made her mark within the company, Fletcher is departing to seek new pastures, with her final day at the company marked on Thursday, 18 January. The airline extends its gratitude for her service and wishes her success in her future endeavours. With such strategic shifts within its public affairs team, Singapore Airlines continues its commitment to maintaining strong communication channels across the vast South West Pacific region.
