Sarah Dixon and Anita Kharbanda
Managing Partners

Urbaine was founded in late 2019 by Managing Partner Sarah Dixon – a highly regarded communications and public relations practitioner in the Brisbane property sector. With more than 23 years of experience, Sarah has delivered strategic outcomes for some of Australia’s largest private and listed companies in the consumer, tourism, hotel, property, finance, and resources sectors. These include Frasers Property Australia, Sekisui House Australia, Ausbuild, Aveo, QIC Global Real Estate, Sunland Group, Watpac, Coles, McDonald’s, local and state governments, and ministerial departments.

Anita Kharbanda joined Urbaine as a Managing Partner in March 2020, bringing more than 23 years of experience in external affairs across infrastructure, construction, property and resources. Anita has led national corporate affairs and marcomms operations, engaged with community and stakeholders for critical project delivery in Australia and the UK, and positioned large private and listed organisations to win new work through strategic and technical writing.
