Celine Kao is our engagement consultant based in Hamilton. Celine joined HSB® Government Relations at the beginning of 2019, assisting with communications and marketing aspects for both clients and the business.

During her undergraduate degree, Celine was involved in activities that enhanced what she had learnt in her classes. She served as President of the Management Communication Students’ Association, interacted with industry professionals through her affiliation with the Public Relations Institute of New Zealand, represented the University of Waikato at the Public Relations Society of America’s national conference, and completed two internships alongside her studies.
