Rebecca Twemlow

Managing Director

Considered a regional advocate for startups in the creative and ICT industries, Rebecca’s leadership has driven Firebrand to explosive growth. Responsible for keeping the Firebrand flame burning bright, her dedication to customer delivery is unsurpassed. Rebecca’s commitment to exceeding customer expectations is complemented by her strengths in strategic planning, process analytics and executive project management.

A fiercely passionate supporter of those in need, the amount of Giving Back Firebrand contribute is seen as a measurement of both personal and professional success. 

When not working on Firebrand, supporting community projects or working on one of the other startups she is involved in, Rebecca is running around after two beautiful children; Tayla and Mason or beating her hubby at SingStar.
