National Industry Leader, Energy & Natural Resources
Cassandra’s passion for the energy industry started early in her career with her first job in the call centre of a large utility. This gave Cassandra an enormous appreciation of customer focus and grounded her in the importance of ‘rolling up your sleeves’ and delivering on commitments. What followed was a diverse range of experiences in a 16-year career spanning significant transformation and change in the energy sector.
Since joining KPMG in 2007, Cassandra has leveraged her breadth of experience in the energy and natural resources sectors to shape and guide the transformation programs of her clients. She is a passionate advocate for the self-empowerment of her clients, and has become a valued advisor through her ability to help leadership team’s work more productively together to deliver customer value.
Her significant experience working in the utilities industry has allowed Cassandra to work with many diverse teams. She cites the ability to listen as one of the most valuable skills an external advisor can possess in order to truly understand the problems her clients are facing.
As National Industry Leader for Energy & Natural Resources, Cassandra brings a whole of firm perspective to problems, aware that technical solutions are only as good as their ability to be implemented. Cassandra is also a mentor to women in the energy and resources sector.
Outside of KPMG, Cassandra is a busy parent to her three sons and enjoys nothing more than watching and partaking in a range of water and land based sports with her boys, enjoying musical performances and entertaining with family and friends.
