HAMILTON, Monday: Award-winning PR and communications agency HMC has appointed Nicola Lee as senior account manager, welcoming her back to the role after a few years away to raise her young family.

HMC director Heather Claycomb said: “Nicola has worked across several sectors providing strategic communications planning and advice, including education, fundraising, health, consumer, agriculture, science, energy, local government and stakeholder relations.

“Her key strengths include strategic planning and implementation, digital PR, project management, stakeholder management and media relations. 

“A skilled writer, Nicola has helped clients and organisations write successful award entries and has a special interest in fundraising and community relations communications.


“Having worked with Nicola previously I knew she would be a great fit for the team again, and she has slipped back into her role effortlessly.”

“Nicola has led several successful client projects from planning through to implementation, including managing the announcement of New Zealand’s first medicinal cannabis company’s IPO on the NZ Stock Exchange, and the national public announcement of ground-breaking research findings on a nitrogen reducing plantain seed – both of which generated significant global media interest.”

Nicola Lee said: “It’s a thrill to be back in a role that enables me to help clients succeed while also providing a challenge and allowing me to continue to grow as a PR practitioner.”

As senior account manager at HMC, she will work across a portfolio of clients in the agricultural, science, corporate and not-for-profit sectors.

Claycomb says she’s pleased to welcome her back. “Having worked with Nicola previously I knew she would be a great fit for the team again, and she has slipped back into her role effortlessly with clients already benefiting from her skills and expertise.

“As an agency we continue to grow our capability in the digital and creative sector, continually adapting to the needs and direction of our clients, while also continuing to deliver the strategic advice clients have come to really value us for.”
