NSW Nationals Digital Communications Manager, Isabelle Gillespie, has been named a “Rising Star” by international political journal Campaigns & Elections.

The coveted Rising Star Award recognises the best young operatives in the campaign business with only two International recipients awarded this year — the remainder being US-based Democrat, Republican or nonpartisan recipients. 

“Issy” Gillespie leads the digital presence for the NSW Nationals, helping push our email fundraising programs forward and working directly with candidates to develop their online and social media presence.

She has worked on multiple campaigns at both the State and Federal level and was central in setting up our Invite Her to Run campaign, a grassroots engagement strategy which encourages more community female leaders to join the Nationals. And for those who know her personally, Issy is a friendly, happy colleague and friend who’s always willing to lend a hand.

Congratulations Issy!

Since 1988, Campaigns & Elections has recognised the best in the business with its Rising Star award, with past winners serving in senior positions on all US Presidential campaigns for both major parties and launching dozens of successful consulting firms.
