Justin established Kirkwoods Corporate Relations in July 2004. Since then, the business has consulted to a range of companies and groups across all industry sectors, in the investment and corporate arenas.
Before establishing Kirkwoods in 2004, Justin was the Head of Corporate Affairs-Asia Pacific for AMP Henderson Global Investors, at the time Australia’s biggest investment management group. In this role he was responsible for media relations, internal communications, government relations and strategic communication for the group’s Asia Pacific operations across Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong and New Zealand. Justin was also the Head of Media Relations for AMP Limited from 1999-2002. Over his nine year tenure at AMP he was responsible for communication strategy for a wide range of corporate and funds management initiatives.

Prior to his career in corporate relations, Justin spent ten years working in the financial markets of Sydney and London as a capital markets broker with Tullet & Tokyo Forex and MW Marshall & Co. It was during this period, when financial markets in Australia were established and the Australian banking industry was deregulated, that Justin’s market skills were developed and sharpened.
Justin has a Master of International Studies (University of Sydney) and a Bachelor of Arts (Communication) from Charles Sturt University, marjoring in Public Affairs.
