Award-winning communications business Clear Hayes Consulting has officially launched in New Zealand, the first international office for the firm specialising in marketing to marketers.
Founded in 2018 in Sydney, Clear Hayes helps businesses in the media, marketing and creative space create impact through unique storytelling.
The boutique consultancy offers a range of communications disciplines including content, PR and production.
Clear Hayes’ Aotearoa presence will be led by former StopPress editor Courtney Devereux, and counts Lumo Digital Outdoor, LENS Technology & Analytics and Method as foundation clients.
Founder Alex Hayes says establishing a local presence was a logical step, having already worked with Facebook, Verizon Media and Outbrain.
“We’re really excited to formally expand our unique services across the ditch to help great New Zealand businesses grow their presence locally and overseas.
“I’ve always been in awe of the creative and innovative prowess of Kiwi companies and the pandemic has created an amazing opportunity for more of them to share these gifts with clients beyond New Zealand’s shores. We’re perfectly placed to help make this happen.”
Work in the local market includes Facebook’s Face 2 Face podcast, which was number one in the Apple business charts. It shines a spotlight on iconic brands including Whittakers and The Warehouse Group.
Clear Hayes also helped bring the Verizon Media Academy Masterclass events to life.
Devereux says: “Our strategic approach and in-depth knowledge of the industry across the region means we’ve been able to help accelerate brands like Lumo and Method in a really short period of time.
“At its core marketing is really simple – but the industry has a habit of overcomplicating things. We turn that jargon into plain-English to make it easy for marketers to understand how your solution can help to solve their business problems.”
