Glenn Andrew, managing director of Dyson ANZ says this is a fantastic opportunity for Dyson to build and expand its business in New Zealand, enabling it to introduce new advanced technologies, and Dyson's experience to both customers and retail partners.

“We’re recruiting a strong, talented workforce for our New Zealand office to deliver new category growth to retail partners in the long term, and can’t wait to get started.”

Andrew says over the past three years, Dyson has almost doubled its marketing investment in New Zealand.

“We expect to continue that level of commitment in future years with exciting innovations that will revolutionise categories.”

Katie Millington, managing director and executive producer at Eight, says the company is thrilled to have Max.

“He’s got it all - talent, skill, heart, passion and charisma. The world is his oyster.”

Rub of the green: our picks for future New Zealand weed brands

Marijuana has been legalised or decriminalised in a number of countries and states and a whole heap of entrepreneurs and savvy marketers have jumped on the hashwagon. In fact, some commodity traders have called marijuana ‘the next coffee’, such is its potential as a consumer good. In New Zealand, it may not be too long before the same thing happens, with those wacky-backy-loving liberals from Labour close to letting medical marijuana through in some form and a number of local go-getters are ready to light the fuse and fly high.
