New Head In Direct Mail At NZ Post

New Zealand Post is delighted to announce the appointment of Sonya Crosby as national manager, Direct Mail Services.

New Zealand Post says Sonya will offer a direct point of contact for advice and information for its Direct Mail activities.

“I also see my role as that of advocacy and hope to provide that essential credible front of mind presence for direct mail users and industry players.”

Ms Crosby says direct mail is the clear winner with consumers for receiving loyalty based advertising.
