Marianne’s innate confidence and ‘can do’ attitude are the attributes that proved critical in building a client base from scratch, and getting the business to a size that enabled it to achieve full media accreditation.
Prior to establishing her own company, Marianne was General Manager of Direct Sales at TV3, New Zealand.
Marianne has always been media focused and driven. Having come ‘from the media’, rather than the traditional route of agencies, Marianne has insights as to how media works.
She knows how to leverage value from the many and varied channels she deals with, without compromising excellent on-going relationships.
Before TV3, Marianne was Sales Manager of 91FM, New Zealand’s first FM music station. 91FM was trend setting, pioneering, and embodied the vision of its parent company Metromedia.
Highly skilled in the ‘university-of-life’, Marianne also has a more conventional qualification in the form of a Post-Graduate Diploma in Marketing from New Zealand’s pre-eminent tertiary institution The University of Auckland.
