Craig Stanaway joins Duco Events.

Craig Stanaway joins Duco Events.

FORMER TVNZ identity Craig Stanaway has joined Duco Events.

The multiple television and radio award winner inked his deal with New Zealand’s foremost event development and promotions company last night.

Stanaway, who has covered two Olympic Games, an All Blacks tour, a FIFA World Cup and multiple America’s Cups, brings 17 years of broadcasting experience with him to Duco in his new role as Communications Manager.

“This is going to be a pretty special year for Duco,” Director David Higgins said, “and having Craig on-board will be a big plus for the organisation.

“His experience and his contacts in New Zealand, Australia and London will be key to the success of a number of the projects we have on the table.”

Stanaway, who resigned from his role on TVNZ’s Seven Sharp last month, is excited to be joining the Duco Events team.

“The move away from television into a role like this is not something that I ever envisaged,” he said.

“But I have known David Higgins and Dean Lonergan for a long time.

“They are the best in the business at what they do, and when the chance to join them came up, it was a no-brainer – especially given the number of exciting projects they have in the works.”

Stanaway says it was a wrench to leave the state broadcaster after nine years of service.

“I am very proud of what I achieved at TVNZ,” he said.

“I enjoyed my time there. I am sure at some stage I will return to broadcasting.

“But for the moment I love innovation and shaking cages and that’s what Duco do.

“And I love the passion that they bring to their events. I can’t wait to get started and begin this new chapter in my life.”
