With a career spanning 32 years in both New Zealand and Asia, Dave Elliott has had plenty of time to prove his talent. However, it’s since he stepped into the role of general manager of marketing at Mitre 10 that his vision and contribution has seen him become one of the country’s best.
Taking advantage of the ever increasing consumer presence in the online world, and following on from its previous successes in the content marketing space, Mitre 10 is continuing to take DIY digital, this time by locking up a few punters in one of its stores with UK TV presenter and celebrity architect George Clarke and filming the results for a new web series called the “Mitre 10 Lock In”.

Through its ongoing ‘Easy As’ campaign, Mitre 10 has shown that the Kiwi appetite for DIY extends beyond home renovation TV shows. In September 2013, the first phase of the intiative, which consisted of 27 clips, reached one million YouTube views. But general manager of marketing Dave Elliott says that this is only small part of what underpins the company’s digital strategy.
