WELLINGTON, Wednesday: Just before lockdown started in August, Go Media erected two new digital screens in Hutt Road in Wellington taking their total network at that time to 50 Screens nationally.
With new digital sites coming to Porirua and Upper Hutt later in the year, they will have a network with a total of 12 screens in the Greater Wellington area. This growth has led them to open a Wellington Office at Urban Hub in Lambton Quay and recruit some well-known industry faces.
Jude Taylor has worked in the Wellington agency market for 30 years, starting her career in radio with PRISM and then TRB, a couple of local radio stints, before moving to TVNZ, and eventually TV3 where she had been for almost 19 years.
Having taken redundancy in May from Discovery NZ, she has had three months to consider her next move.
When the opportunity to work for Go Media was presented, she didn’t hesitate: “To work for a NZ-owned business, keen and agile, with a wonderfully strong ethos and ethics behind all their business decisions, and their commitment to give back, I didn’t hesitate
“I love the Wellington media market and to work in a company like Go Media really speaks to my heart and passion for what I do. The portfolio is extensive, and Go Media is really accelerating. I absolutely wanted to join in the ride”.
“When you include all our assets – bus, trains, static and digital billboards, we own the market here.”
Craig Strachan was the direct out-of-home rep at MediaWorks and has been in the Wellington market for three years.
“Given Go Media’s presence in the Wellington market, it was a no-brainer when the opportunity presented itself to me.
“Our portfolio is going from strength to strength here when you include all our assets – bus, trains, static and digital billboards, we own the market here.
“I’m also a huge believer in giving back to the community, which was another drawcard – the support they give the community across sports and the arts is amazing.”
Go Media director Mike Gray said: “We are absolutely stoked to have Jude and Craig come on board as we have wanted to open a Wellington office for some time as we believe it is better to service our clients at a local level.”
“With recently added screens into Auckland, Go Media have since increased their network to 55 screens nationally.”
