Prior to this role he has worked in senior leadership positions across Australasia and in a range of industries including FMCG, and been a business owner himself.

“Mike brings a wealth of experience from a range of industries and develops excellent client relationships,” Maxwell says. :His experience in developing effective strategies to protect and grow revenue, whilst shaping teams, driving performance and celebrating success, are all assets we welcome into NZME.”

Both start at NZME in August.
