Philippa Honner

Founder

Philippa founded Honner (then Honner Media) in 1997 in a bid to provide targeted PR for the investment, superannuation and financial services sector. 

Today that service spans the broader Australian financial and corporate sectors. 

Philippa offers 20 years’ experience in financial PR, communications and journalism. Prior to establishing Honner, Philippa worked in the banking sector in Sydney and London before pursuing a career in financial communications. She worked as a financial journalist in the UK before returning to Australia in 1994 to edit Australian superannuation and institutional investment journal Super Review. She also spent two years with one of the UK’s leading corporate and financial PR agencies, Fishburn, where she worked across a range of accounts including PricewaterhouseCoopers and British Telecom during the dotcom boom. 

These days Philippa oversees the running of the agency and drives the growth and evolution of the business, including its new business and partnerships programs. She also contributes to the strategic planning process for clients. 

Philippa has a Bachelor of Economics from the University of Sydney. In her spare time she enjoys building things with Lego.
