ELIZA THORN

ELIZA THORN

Manager, Queensland and Pacific

Eliza manages IR’s projects in Queensland, the Northern Territory and Pacific regions. She has extensive skills and experience in delivering complex international security, risk, transport and due diligence projects. Eliza had over ten years’ experience in security, international policy, liaison and analysis roles with the Australian Department of Defence (including extended deployments to East Timor and Iraq) and the Office of Transport Security (OTS). She was a senior diplomat in the Australian Embassy in Thailand before joining IR in 2013 as Manager of our practice in Bangkok.

In 2015 Eliza transferred to Australia to manage the Corporate Integrity Program, delivering numerous due diligence projects for our clients including particularly complex cases in China, Indonesia, Myanmar and Vietnam. In late 2018 Eliza was appointed Manager of our practice in Brisbane.

Eliza has managed IR teams delivering a range of complex security projects – including for the Queensland Cultural Centre Precinct, Suncorp, Origin Energy, the Brisbane 2032 Olympics and Paralympics bid, as well as coordinating our reviews of numerous hospitals and healthcare facilities in Australia and New Zealand. Eliza also had a key role in the IR team supporting Rugby Australia’s bid to host the 2027 World Cup.

In November 2021, Eliza was awarded the Australian Outstanding Security Professionals Award (OSPA) as the 2021 Outstanding Female Security Professional. The OSPAs are given each year to recognise and reward companies, people and innovation across the security sector. Apart from her work for the Brisbane 2032 Olympic Games bid and the 2027 Rugby World Cup bid, the OSPA award commended Eliza’s invaluable role in providing crisis management support to IR’s clients in planning, exercising and operational responses. It also made special mention of Eliza’s key role in the IR team “that assisted the evacuation of more than 100 at-risk Afghans from Kabul ahead of the advancing Taliban”.
