CO-FOUNDER of investor relations and communications firm Cannings Purple, Warrick Hazeldine, plays a pivotal role supporting resources projects and transactions across the state and promoting local projects to international investors.
From early in his career Mr Hazeldine had an ambition to open his own firm that would provide top-quality service to blue-chip clients.
This was achieved in 2004 when, at the age of 28, he and Caroline De Mori established Purple.
Over the past nine years, the firm has grown to become one of the leaders in its field, and was taken to the top spot when international marketing services company STW Group bought a 49 per cent share.
Mr Hazeldine supports a number of charities including SIDS Foundation, the EON Foundation, The Pedalling Penguin, and Parkerville Women’s Shelter.
