Deb Lemcke

Deb Lemcke

Director & Founder

Deb's strong background in communications and events for a wide range of government and NFP clients set up The Launch Box to flourish over the past 12 years. Deb’s greatest strength is her ability to create the right team and then find solutions that deliver projects on time and within budget. Mother to 7-year-old twin girls, and with a penchant for realising their latest art and craft visions, Deb needs a good sense of humour! So she always has a story to make you laugh.

Emily Tate

Emily Tate

General Manager

Emily is meticulous about planning and detail, so perfect for steering The Launch Box team. She has extensive experience in the health, sport, NFP and government sectors. Her skills include corporate and community partnerships, stakeholder relations, strategy development and implementation, strategic media relations, project management and writing. Emily loves cafés, wine, reading and yoga. But, in reality, she spends most of her spare time running after a cheeky toddler and a naughty Labrador!

Tanya Warrington

Tanya Warrington

Account Director

Tanya is brimming with energy, she injects colour and enthusiasm into everything she does. Having worked across government, corporate and NFP sectors for over 10 years, she is passionate about developing strategies and partnerships that achieve outstanding results. Never settling for the easy option, Tanya is always coming up with innovative solutions to reach target audiences and to elevate brands and campaigns. She considers herself a bit of a ‘groove train’, so regularly graces our team with an impromptu song and dance.

Her exceptional project management, stakeholder engagement and organisational skills ensure no detail is overlooked. A country girl who has travelled the world, she enjoys the simple things in life—as evidenced by her love of barbecued lamb chops and her rescue dog Izzy.

Natalie Filmer

Natalie Filmer

Media Specialist

Natalie has more than 20 years’ experience in the communications industry from a range of media roles, including reporter and editor for newspapers and magazines, as well as public relations and marketing. Having worked on both sides of the fence - as a reporter chasing stories and as a public relations professional pitching them - she can confidently develop a media strategy that will cut through and achieve the best results for our clients. When her head is not buried in newspapers, Natalie makes a beeline for the hottest concerts and shows in town.
