With a plethora of career highlights and successes already under her belt, a promotion to the role of Porsche Cars Australia’s new Head of Public Relations is just the latest achievement for Alexis Truscott and another step forward in her career.
In the three and a half years that Morgan Haynes has been at Porsche Cars Australia, she has enjoyed working across a variety of roles, most recently being promoted to Marketing Communications Specialist.
Born in Germany, Sina Schneeweis has a close connection to Porsche, and working for the sports car brand was a long-term goal for her; one she was able to achieve while studying for her undergraduate degree.
There’s nothing quite like the behind-the-scenes thrill of working in marketing and events at Porsche, and two new starters at the Melbourne head office are still buzzing with enthusiasm about working at a sports car brand they have long admired.
Dreaming big has been a driving force for PCA Group IT Systems Support, Grace Paleti. Inspired by her father and his dreams as a young man growing up in India, Paleti left her home country in pursuit of Australian shores and a career in engineering.
From managing all importer production enquiries to spearheading the Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur offering, Lisa Edgar experiences perpetual excitement and drive in her role as Planning & Production Supervisor at Porsche Cars Australia.
To work alongside each other is a joy for Aftersales and Training Co-ordinator, Rosemary Toms and Marketing Operations Coordinator, Marea Ah-Chuen. It’s the cross departmental relationships and synergy of the Porsche Cars Australia working environment that is known for bringing out the best in its team members.
An internship with Porsche in her native Germany in 2009 led to a role of a lifetime for Rasma Ertl, who now works at the Melbourne-based Head Office as a Porsche Track Experience Manager.
Since 2016, Ertl has been creating track experience programs for Porsche owners and enthusiasts alike across Australia. She's all about getting clients behind the wheel of the sportscar maker's captivating machines and enjoying the thrill of experiencing them on a race track.
When Public Relations Manager Stephanie Weiser joined Porsche Cars Australia eight years ago, she was keen to work with a luxury sports car company after a 14-month stint in Europe working at a Formula One Team gave her a taste of life in the fast lane. Weiser is behind some of Porsche Cars Australia’s most defining PR moments, but it’s her commitment to elevating woman with drive that put the Porsche brand in a league of its own under her leadership.
Organising Porsche’s 70th Anniversary Gala in December with a mere six-week lead time to host 400 special guests is one of the high-pressure moments of 2021 that Events Manager Chloe Adamson will never forget. It stands out as a career highlight for Adamson during her 11-year tenure with Porsche Cars Australia.
Two women driving the motorsport agenda at Porsche Cars Australia know that delivering client experiences comes down to their attention to detail. They might operate in the male dominated world of motorsport, but when it comes to this dynamic duo, anything is possible.
