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 Not-for-Profit sector.
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.
"I admire (and joined) Wright Communications for its blend of focused, professional communications and the supportive and collegial team environment Nikki fosters, where everyone strives to bring success for all the clients we look after." Ron Murray
