Judi Hausmann is the founder and CEO of The Hausmann Group, an independent public relations and marketing communications group which she established in 1990.
After working in top London consumer PR consultancies in the 1980’s, Judi was astonished to return to Australia and find that consumer PR was unheard of here. So she did what any self respecting 28 year old with loads of creative flair, a huge passion for brands and lots of energy and entrepreneurial nous would do – she started her own!
Since that time, Hausmann has grown in size and reputation to become one of Asia-Pacific’s most respected and innovative marketing communications agencies with a staff of 50 and an enviable list of clients including Procter & Gamble, Sony, Specsavers, AMP and DHL.
As well as Hausmann Communications, the group also includes Health Haus, a specialist healthcare PR agency which was founded in 2010 and The Hausmann School of Public Relations (HSPR) which is again breaking new ground as the only PR industry initiated Registered Training Organisation to provide nationally recognised qualifications.
In her spare time Judi is a Trustee of the Sydney Theatre Company and supports a wide range of charities and arts organisations. Last year, in conjunction with local NGO Mahboba’s Promise, she founded Judi’s Shelter in Afghanistan which is a refuge for widows and children in war-torn Kabul. She is also part owner of a small and very exclusive Haute Couture and furniture company based in Paris.
