Rob Baird


Executive Assistant to the CEO

Rob joined the Michael Cassel Group in March 2017 and has enjoyed bringing his diverse experience in the industry to his role.  His position involves managing the office for the company and working closely with the Finance team. 

Prior to his role at Michael Cassel Group, Rob worked at Sydney Lyric where he managed Stage Door as the face of the company, for all productions attending the venue. 

His love for the industry began whilst training for the circus and he discovered musical theatre whilst performing tricks for a production of Barnum. This eventually led to studying at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA).  He graduated from WAAPA in 2010 and has been an active part of the Sydney theatre scene since. 

Before becoming interested in the production side of theatre, Rob was a performing artist, regularly working in Sydney on performances for younger audiences.  When not entertaining smaller theatregoers Rob also worked with Independent theatre companies, starred in the indie feature Theatre of The Dead and appeared on various programmes for the ABC and the Seven Network.
