Senior Account Director
A trained journalist and marketer whose writing skills are
anchored in a first career as an English teacher, Ron has compiled
a rich dossier of experience across more than 25 years in public
relations and corporate communications management.
In that time he has developed a strong set of communications
capabilities including corporate and marketing communications,
relationship, sponsorship and publications management, media and
government relations and internal communications. He has
brought his skills and knowledge to both agency and in-house
communications roles, in the private and public sectors for clients
in Health, Pharmaceuticals, Forestry, Banking, Technology,
Transport, Professional Services, Energy, Computing and the
Ron's experience includes communications management roles with
KiwiRail, Siemens (NZ) Ltd, Merck Sharp & Dohme,
GlaxoSmithKline and Counties Manukau DHB. His consulting
ethos is the importance of clearly understanding his clients'
communications needs, goals and priorities, and bringing all the
weapons in his armoury to bear on meeting them.
Outside his working life, Ron enjoys time with his family,
dabbles in music, surfs occasionally, reads voraciously, and turns
some of New Zealand's most beautiful timbers to unwind.
