ReachMedia has been selected as the nationwide distribution partner for New Zealand Media and Entertainment’s 15 community newspapers and OneRoof real estate publications.
The announcement comes after ReachMedia secured last month a new partnership deal with Stuff that would see the former become distribution partner for Stuff Limited community newspapers for the entire Auckland Region.
As part of the new relationship with NZME, the media company will utilise the capabilities of ReachMedia’s extensive data and letterbox networks.
“Having undertaken a successful trial we have been impressed by ReachMedia’s operation and their ability to provide timely information and transparency on network performance that can be shared easily across our business. This information coupled with the relationship that our people can have with key local staff from Reach that manage the distribution is a key element in creating a successful long term partnership,” says Matt Wilson, Chief Operations Officer at NZME.
“We are both excited and very proud to have secured this partnership with NZME,” adds Struan Abernethy CEO of ReachMedia.
“We have been working with the NZME team for a number of months now on a small area in Auckland and it is fair to say that both parties have been thrilled with the results achieved. Our focus is to drive a customer centric and transparent service and I am looking forward to building a long standing relationship with NZME that is built on trust and innovation,” he says.
