Movings/Shakings: January 31

Slim pickings today, in terms of industry comings and goings. Fortunately, hot on the heels of a news portal overhaul and freshly minted partnership with news agency AAP, online media company MSN New Zealand have kicked off the year with three new appointments.
Rory Keane and Jenna Powell have taken newly created dual roles of digital associate producer. Based in Auckland and part of MSN’s trans-Tasman news and content team, Keane and Powell oversee New Zealand news and content production for website msn.co.nz. Keane, an experienced journalist who has worked for several media properties owned by Cork-based publisher Thomas Crosbie Holdings, most recently worked as a Rugby World Cup 2011 correspondent for the Irish Examiner and Irish Daily Star (insert unsuitable Irish joke about drinking, or potatoes here, and adding "to be sure" at least twice).

Powell joins MSN from United Press. Earlier she held the role of general reporter at daily regional paper The Wairarapa Times Age.

On the advertising front, Dan Hesson has been appointment campaign manager, responsible for client campaign workflow and reporting. He spent over three years in ad operations with Yahoo!, holding roles in both New Zealand and the UK. Most recently he was online manager at auctioneer Turners Auctions.

Riding the wave of social conversations

Brands are just coming of age in the new collaborative economy. Like any teenager though, a lot of their actions at the moment are a bit awkward. Most of us learnt at some point that joining in on an existing conversation is much easier than starting your own by shouting until you get someone to pay attention. But to join in and be heard means being relevant and on code, and of course the ‘on code’ bit is what brands need to work out because it is constantly changing.
