Carla Vanner
Marketing & Communications Manager
Lend Lease’s Engineering business

Carla Vanner is a seasoned communications professional, with expertise in external communications and media management; internal communications; and change and issues management.

In her current role as marketing & communications manager with Lend Lease’s Engineering business, she focusses on internal communications spanning white and blue collar audiences and external communications to industry and trade media.

Before moving in-house to work for News Corp Australia and then Lend Lease, Carla honed her craft in Australia’s leading public relations agencies, including an eleven year association with the Ogilvy PR Group of Companies.

Carla is the mother of two daughters and is active in her local swimming club, netball competition and enjoys chasing her girls around a hockey field.

She has strong views on combining productivity and parenthood and subscribes to the idea of ‘lifting up’ as well as ‘leaning in’ – improving representation of women in senior ranks is best played as a team sport.
