Bastion Shine has been appointed as the integrated advertising and communications partner for J.H Whittaker & Sons, following a competitive pitch process.
Whittaker’s has been the winner of New Zealand’s Most Trusted Brand for the last 12 years running.
Co-Chief Operating Officers Holly and Matt Whittaker say the family-owned chocolate company is delighted to appoint Bastion Shine as its integrated advertising and communications partner following a competitive pitch process.
“We believe in long-term partnerships, and have been impressed by the people and quality of creative and strategic thinking from the Bastion Shine team. We believe they will be a great fit with the Whittaker’s culture and that they are the right partner to deliver on our vision of the world loving world-class chocolate from Porirua.”
Bastion Shine Wellington Managing Director Jodi Willocks says: “The team at Whittaker’s are passionate about creating chocolate of uncompromising quality all the way from bean to bar. Having the opportunity to partner with a local business that is committed to quality in everything they do was a huge motivator for us. We’re delighted to add such a well-loved brand to our Wellington client roster, and to be working with a group of people as committed to enduring partnerships as we are.”
The Whittaker’s NZ partnership is the latest in a string of client and project wins for Bastion Shine Wellington, since launching their unique offering in the capital in September last year.
