1st State has welcomes two new staff to their team of senior consultants.

Susan Warren will be taking up the position of Managing Director; originally from the United States, Susan began her long interest in politics working in the Louisiana State Legislature in the early 1970's; a tumultuous period in American Politics. Undeterred, Susan moved to Australia where she has had more than 30 years' experience working in the upper echelons of Australia's political and corporate environments. Her experience has spanned State and Federal politics where she has held numerous positions in opposition and government leaders' offices in Canberra and Macquarie Street and the private sector; having been the Lead Government Affairs Director for International Defence giant Raytheon.

Mark Egelstaff brings more than 14 years experience to his role as Strategy and Policy Manager having been a long time staffer to the Hon. Christopher Pyne, Minister for Industry, Innovation and Science. Most recently, Mark was a Policy Adviser to the NSW Minister for the Environment, helping to introduce a range of policies and regulatory frameworks which balanced the requirement for strong and viable environmental safeguards with the needs of industry and the wider community.

1st State welcomes our newest team members and is excited by the dynamism and experience they will bring to our organisation.
