Better by Design has appointed Desiree Keown to the position of Marketing & Communications Manager, based within the Wellington office of New Zealand Trade and Enterprise.

Following on from the very successful Better by Design conference in late March, marketing activities will be stepped up to keep New Zealand business and design communities engaged in the initiative, and encourage participation in the various programmes and projects associated with it.

Ms Keown has 20 years in marketing and communications, most recently as GM Marketing for technology company, Synergy International Ltd. Her most high profile role was managing the Land Transport Safety Authority's award-winning road safety campaign from 2000-2002.
