NZME Appoints General Manager Communications

NZME Appoints General Manager Communications

14 March 2019 – NZME has today announced communications manager and former journalist Cliff Joiner has been appointed to the newly created role of General Manager Communications.

Making the announcement today NZME CEO Michael Boggs said, “NZME is entering an exciting phase and the time is right to establish this role for the business. Cliff’s extensive journalistic background and his communications experience make this an ideal appointment to assist with our growth strategy across print, radio and digital initiatives.”

Mr Joiner will leave his current role as External Relations Manager at Bank of New Zealand after Easter to join NZME. “NZME is the real power house of journalism and entertainment in New Zealand,” said Mr Joiner. “There isn’t a corner of New Zealand that NZME reporters and radio hosts don’t reach. NZME is also at the forefront of innovation in ensuring high quality in-depth journalism has a flourishing future in New Zealand,” said Mr Joiner.

NZME Managing Editor Shayne Currie said, “Cliff is extremely well regarded as a journalist amongst our editorial teams across the NZ Herald, Newstalk ZB, Radio Sport and NZME regional newsrooms. It’s great having someone with his skillset and experience dedicated to ensuring we share our own stories effectively across our business and into the communities we serve.”

Mr Joiner will team up with Internal Communications Manager Rowena D’Souza at NZME from Monday 29 April. Until then NZME’s Chief Marketing Officer Katie Mills said all media enquiries should be directed to NZME’s agency - NSPR. “The team at NSPR have done a great job for us over the years and I’d especially like to thank Kate Barron for her commitment to NZME,” said Ms Mills.
