Industry veteran Lee Parkinson has become a Strategic Partner at Strategy Christchurch.
Parkinson has been a strategist for over two decades and worked with clients from virtually every industry and sector.
Over the last three years, he has been developing, driving and implementing insight-led strategies for Strategy Christchurch clients on a day to day basis.
“The last three years here have given me the perfect (and extended) opportunity to ‘try before I buy’. I’m really thrilled to become a Partner alongside Nick Harvey and Rupert de Paula, as we continue to build the agency to cater for what our clients need, and where we can deliver real value. It’s a great feeling to fully contribute to the direction and future of our studio.”
Strategy Christchurch Managing Partner Nick Harvey says welcoming Parkinson as a full partner is a testament to his work.
“Lee put the strategy back into Strategy and we are very much looking forward to working closely with Lee to continue to grow the Strategy brand, reinforce the Strategy vision, and empower our team to become the best creative problem solvers for businesses in the South Island.
“Lee has been in the game almost as long as Strategy has been in business, so he’s seen all the trends come and go. For me, the combination of his previous experience mixed with his forward-thinking attitude is invaluable. He has certainly contributed across all areas of the business and we look forward to what the future holds.”
Founded 29 years ago in Christchurch, Strategy Creative now also has studios in Wellington, Auckland, Sydney and Tokyo.
The last four years have been big for the Christchurch studio, which has created widely-praised work for clients including University of Canterbury, Orion Energy and Ryman Healthcare.
