Mike Watson Director of Marketing, Sky TV New Zealand

"OMD and its specialist business units understand how brands need to operate in the increasingly digitalised world. This is an agency that still understands the importance of consumer insight and behavior change but then seamlessly connects that to digital environments that produce positive ROI. Rather than letting technology or digital lead the agenda and then missing the mark in terms of the connection with your target audiences.”

Melanie Lynn Head of Marketing, Meridian New Zealand

As a client of OMD Wellington, I’ve always felt the team has our best interests to the fore. They pride themselves on excellent client service & behind the scenes work hard to ensure smooth delivery of effective marketing. They think in a properly integrated way, combining traditional & digital media to complement one another, & when needed tap into the digital and data expertise that resides in the larger Auckland office. Their culture is respectful, energetic, curious and fun.

As a whole the office is friendly and creative team who encourage each to push the boundaries and support each other when things don’t go to plan.

Rebecca Lloyd

Account Director

WHEN DID YOU JOIN OMD
May 2015

WHAT DID YOU DO BEFOREHAND
I’ve worked in media since 1998, with a couple of breaks for maternity leave, in both full service & media agencies.  I started out as a Media Assistant and my role prior to joining OMD was as a Senior Planner.

WHAT ATTRACTED YOU TO OMD
A great opportunity to develop my career working with talented people that I respect, on great pieces of business.

WHAT IS THE OFFICE LIKE 
The office has a great vibe.  The layout & facilities make it easy to communicate & collaborate, by all being together in one open plan space, with plenty of breakout space for meetings.  The team are great, we work hard, have fun, and look after each other.

WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT OMD
The people development programmes at OMD are something I haven’t experienced in other agencies.  The easy access to training and opportunities to upskill & gain knowledge is so valuable.

WHAT IS YOUR INSPIRATION
My children are my biggest inspiration.  Their creativity and fearlessness is refreshing, and they are a constant reminder of how quickly media changes – they think Facebook is for old people!

Genevieve Lawrence

Senior Account Manager

WHEN DID YOU JOIN OMD
June 2012

WHAT DID YOU DO BEFORE JOINING OMD
After wrapping up a Design degree at Otago, I spent 5 months in Hanmer Springs at The Heritage Hotel before moving to Auckland.

WHAT IS YOUR CURRENT ROLE AND HAVE YOU HAD ANY OTHER ROLES IN THE BUSINESS
Account Manager. Previously, Account Exec, Grad, Receptionist, Temp Receptionist.

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FAVOURITE MOMENT WHILE WORKING AT OMD
Working with Rob on the Young Lions competition. High pressure, not a lot of sleep, a looming deadline and a mad rush at the end but the feeling after hitting send was amazing and it was eye opening to see what we’re capable of with only 24 hours to do it! It made me approach client briefs differently after that experience.

ANYTHING UNIQUE ABOUT OMD
A genuine closeness within the teams. The friendships we make here extend outside of the workday which contributes to the overall environment and output of work. There’s a real sense of all working together to do great work and an understanding of how we all fit into that which I think is pretty special.  

WHAT IS THE OFFICE LIKE
High energy, open plan with lots of space for collaboration and socialising!
