Waikato PR firm HMC Communications continues to grow

Waikato PR firm HMC Communications continues to grow

Just two months after Hamilton public relations consultancy HMC Communications grew from two to three, the small Waikato agency has taken on a fourth communications professional.

Amy Meade joined the team in July in a communications manager role, after seven years’ experience working in communications and public relations for the Waikato District Health Board.

Prior to beginning her professional public relations career, Amy worked as a community newspaper journalist in the North King Country at the Waitomo News, and edited the newspaper’s monthly farming magazine.

“By bringing Amy on board, we are able to provide an even further expanded range of communications services to our Waikato clients,” said Heather.

“We were at the point where to offer the quality of service HMC prides itself on, we needed more human resource. Amy’s background in media and the rural sector will particularly serve our agricultural clients well.

“She also brings experience in corporate communications, marketing communications, media relations, community relations, internal communications and event management.”

HMC Communications has worked with small to medium-sized companies for well over 10 years throughout the Central North Island. Its clients operate in a range of sectors including dairy, aviation, energy and not-for-profits.

Amy joins HMC Communications director Heather Claycomb, senior accounts manager Charlotte FitzPatrick and communications coordinator Bethany Pawson who collectively have more than 30 years’ experience in communications and public relations.

The Auckland-based company has increased its estimate to build the centre to between $470 million and $530 million as the construction boom across the country drives up building costs and design changes add to the bill.
