AUCKLAND, Tuesday: CBD-based NSPR Ltd has appointed Rebecca Reid (nee Milne) to become a director and business shareholder. NSPR founder Niki Schuck says Reid’s commitment to NSPR and its clients over several years gave her huge confidence in her role in the future of the business.
“Rebecca has a relentless work ethic and ethos, the highest standards of professionalism, an infectious personality and energy levels that would give the Energiser Bunny a run for its money!
“I am hugely excited about the future of NSPR, especially when combined with the skills and attributes of my fellow director Kate Grant [nee Barron].
“A member of the NSPR team since January 2015, Rebecca has vast communications experience and skills working across the full range and depth of clients at NSPR. She has been a long-standing sounding board, with her expertise and strategic abilities often sought by the senior leadership team.”
Reid trained as a journalist, working in newsrooms from the age of 17. She worked at several national newspapers and two national women’s magazine titles for more than a decade before moving into communications for a district health board charity.
“Rebecca would give the Energiser Bunny a run for its money!”
From there, she became self-employed working as a PR contractor to a number of well-known PR agencies before an opportune brunch with Schuck highlighted an alliance of commonalities other than a love of poached eggs!
Reid is excited to step into a strategic leadership role and thrilled to continue to provide NSPR’s signature ‘going the extra mile’ for clients, whilst also playing a role in developing the business.
“The world of PR is dynamic and constantly evolving – communicating, informing, and educating is at its core. Enormous credit must go to those in the media who listen, enquire and, at times, push back, weaving remarkable stories that, when shared, are catalysts for improvements in our lives through creating ripples of change.”
NSPR managing director Kate Grant says she is looking forward to working closely with Reid, in addition to Schuck, on the future of the business.
“Rebecca is an incredibly talented communications professional and I am thrilled that she will become a director. Her sense of humour, dedication to clients and industry knowledge are just some of the attributes that make her a great business partner.”
