The New Zealand office of Haystac opened for business in 2009 and two years on things are going rather swimmingly for the Aegis-owned PR agency, with TelstraClear, Jetstar, Sonos Electronics, Motorola and Next Generation Clubs recently joining SEEK, DB, GlaxoSmithKline, Mattel and Beehive and Premier bacon on its client list. They grow up so fast.
“Delivering prominent marcomms campaigns for our existing clients has really fast-tracked our team growth and attracted the attention of exciting new clients,” says general manager Fleur Postill. “We’re also very fortunate to have a stellar team of consultants who will continue to grow in the weeks and months to come.”
Last year that stellar team put the aprons on and did some baking in order to dish out a few first birthday presents. And the team has gone to even greater lengths for birthday number two, with a very well-wrapped gift laden with treats and a CD of classic party bangers aimed at inspiring a few heady games of office pass the parcel.
As for staff, Haystac has recently raided the Mango cupboards to bolster its roster, with senior account director Alice Moros and senior account manager Ana-Mari Gates-Bowey joining the fray, while a yet-to-be-discovered account manager will soon be added to the team.
Slightly further afield, Haystac has also opened offices in Brisbane and Singapore, adding to the offices in Sydney and Melbourne, and a new digital and social media department has recently been established in Australia.
