Maree Gurney  |  OFFICE MANAGER

The friendly face at reception or the welcoming voice on the end of the phone, Maree is The Catalyst Group’s secret weapon. As our office manager, Maree uses her super powers to turn scribble into legible reports, ensures we keep to deadlines, and maintains office decorum, all while tending to the many details of running a busy office.

Maree is also a mean baker, keeping the team and our many clients and visitors fed with home-made cakes and biscuits.
