Kate Smailes

Kate Smailes

Kate is an events and communications specialist with almost 20 years’ experience. Her career started straight out of university, joining Traffik Marketing for 4.5 year, before leaving to grow and lead the events team at her family’s business.
In 2017 Kate joined the Havas group as Executive Director of Havas Blvd. Kate has always believed that events are where brand communications should seamlessly combine to say something memorable about the product. Creativity, focus and exacting attention to detail are only the start. She goes further with a holistic approach to event management, ensuing that everything the guests see, hear and experience contributes to the story the brand wishes to tell.
In 2019 Kate was appointed to the board of directors for the Australian Institute for Motor Sport Safety (AIMSS). AIMSS is a not-for-profit organisation, established by Motorsport Australia (formally CAMS) in 2007, and is the peak body for motor sport safety and related research in Australia.
Kate has created campaigns for leading brands across a wide range of industries including Toyota Australia, Lexus Australia, BlueScope Steel, Nestle, Diageo, Qantas, St George Bank and Revlon.
