In July, The R&A was pleased to welcome Olivia McMillan to the organisation in the role of Corporate Communication Manager based in the Corporate Communications department at St Andrews.
Olivia joins the R&A from her previous role as Media and Communications Manager at the PGA of Australia. Working with the PGA of Australia and PGA Tour of Australasia for nine years she has extensive experience delivering the media function at 18 golf championships throughout Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific and has had strategic communications responsibility for the broad spectrum of the PGA of Australia’s activities.
Olivia has also worked across consumer and B2B audiences using traditional, digital and social media and has been the main contact for the media’s engagement with players. She has a Bachelor’s Degree from Monash University in Business and Commerce, with a focus on Public Relations and Marketing.
Olivia’s main areas of responsibility within The R&A will be focused on women and girls golf, strategy and governance communications in the Asia Pacific region, handicapping and shorter forms of golf. Given her responsibilities within Asia Pacific we look forward to working closely with Olivia throughout her tenure with The R&A.
