Luke Heilbuth

Head of Strategy

Our head of strategy is a lawyer, with a background in diplomacy and public policy. He prides himself on helping clients address strategic sustainability challenges, his Lebanese cooking skills and a freakish recollection of 90s rap lyrics (yes, even the third verse of Boom! Shake the Room).

In a previous life, Luke wrote landmark speeches for the Australian Prime Minister, oversaw Cabinet processes on the US Alliance and counter-ISIL strategy, and coordinated briefings for the Prime Minister’s engagements with President Obama and other world leaders. He also served as a policy adviser to the Foreign Minister and as a diplomat in Lebanon during the Arab Spring. He speaks Arabic.

Luke was the voice of the stingray in the cartoon, Beached Az. Despite his brush with fame (and outstanding New Zealand accent), Luke’s dream of Pixar stardom remains unfulfilled.
