Internet Bureau wins Media Personality of the Year

The Internet Bureau wins Media Personality of the Year

The team at The Internet Bureau has won the Personality of the Year award at the 2005 CAANZ Media Awards.

This Communication Agencies Association of New Zealand (CAANZ) award recognises the outstanding contribution made by The Internet Bureau team to the media industry. The industry as a whole has benefited from the passion and innovation of The Internet Bureau team and this award recognises their commitment.

The Internet Bureau was born out of the success of InterACTION. John Stewart set up InterACTION in 1998 to develop websites and online campaigns.

Such were the achievements of InterACTION, that by 2000 a number of advertising agencies were approaching it to enlist its help with client campaigns.

The Internet Bureau was formed to specialise in planning, buying and managing online campaigns for other agencies.

In the past five years it has grown to be the largest independent provider of online advertising services in New Zealand.

It has a team of eight online media planner and buyers, headed up by John Schofield and Deborah Davenport.

It has planned and placed online advertising for more than 250 companies on behalf of a number of the country’s leading advertising agencies.

The Internet Bureau team members were also key drivers in establishing an online audience measurement standard for New Zealand, in conjunction with CAANZ and the Online Publishers Group.
