Starting in the interactive world in 1997 with GREY Interactive, I’ve been in the marketing / digital industry for over 20 years. It all started, when a 33.3k modem was fast and email was something relatively new, so I’ve seen a huge change in the industry from both a technology and a user perspective.
Then in early 2000, I joined the award winning Terabyte Interactive as a producer / project manager / studio manager, where I got to work on many varied projects from small to enormous, for big and small brands, such as: Newscorp Te Papa, TRN / Mighty River Power / New Zealand Lotteries and many others.
A change was in the wind in 2006, so I joined the Australia’s then largest promotional marketing agency, Apollo Marketing. Working with Apollo over two years with some of the biggest brands in NZ and Australia, I got to work closely with the marketing teams to develop some very cool applications, including one of the, if not the first, SMS / Web integrated campaign in the southern hemisphere. The development and build of an online Sales tool for DB Breweries that won Gold at the 2009 APMA awards for BEST BUSINESS-TO-BUSINESS CAMPAIGN.
In 2008, time for a change so I threw in the towel and started out on my own. Since then I have been working on various projects from a freelance perspective in the sales / marketing / comms / digital & IT sectors, using my experience to continue to create flexible digital & marketing based products working in varied markets and business areas.
In 2012 I purchased a tired brand, with a very tired business model. Taking what I knew, we re-modeled the business, re-branded and re-built the brand, changed the focus, added 6 new revenue streams and built a commercial / trade partner model. After three years, we exited the business [sold] after year on year growth of over 40%. Project complete, whats next.
So, to put it simply, I get it…
