Senior Account Director
A lady never reveals her age, but what Melanie McKay can say is
that when she started working as a communications advisor on one of
Auckland's most ambitious projects - the revitalisation of the
waterfront - Wynyard Quarter was still a tank farm.
Now it's one of the most exciting areas of Auckland, but it's
gone through some peaks and troughs to get there. The work
proved to be a fantastic and challenging project for Melanie, a
former newspaper journalist, and has been the highlight of an
exciting 10 years in the communications and public relations
Whether working the public or private sectors, as either an
in-house communications advisor or a senior public relations
consultant, Melanie brings a wealth of experience to the task,
especially in the area of issues and crisis management. Her
first-rate writing skills have been honed on some of New Zealand's
award-winning community and provincial newspapers.
As a consultant Melanie has given strategic advice and handled a
wide range of media work and projects for clients including Russell
Investments, Staples Rodway, Massey University's College of
Business and Vector Arena.
When not at work, Melanie is most likely to be found at the
beach not far from home playing with her daughter.
