INDUSTRY - Brand & Marketing

For the last 10 years the team and I have worked to grow YoungShand into one of New Zealand’s leading independent creative/digital agencies. This was recognised in the Stoppies last year with the agency named ‘Group of Humans’ in their agency awards. We focus on driving sustainable growth for our clients, developing brand, creative campaigns and creating fresh digital experiences that move businesses forward. We offer an integrated approach with strategy, creative, digital and media all under one roof.

I’ve had an interesting career so far, I started life client side spending 20 years working in a variety of sales and marketing roles including, General Manager Sales & Marketing ihug, Sales & Marketing Manager ICPbio and Group Brand Manager at Air New Zealand.

That experience unexpectedly led me to start YoungShand with Ben in 2009. We’re one of the few agencies that is successfully exploring how to be a creative agency in this new digital world. We have a relentless focus on creative ideas and I get excited about making a real difference for our clients.
