Media release - nzgirl.co.nz
December 1st, 2009
New Zealand’s number one female lifestyle website, nzgirl.co.nz , today announced plans to establish itself as an independent publisher in 2010 and appoint Tee Twyford as General Manager/Editor.
Following on from the announcement that parent company Flossie Media Group is set to move head office to Sydney, Australia; CEO, Jenene Freer, today made the following announcement regarding nzgirl.co.nz;
“Flossie Media Group is the current owner of nzgirl.co.nz (and nzgirl Ltd); from the 1st of January nzgirl will operate under a new company structure. FMG is an aggregating business while nzgirl is a publishing businesss and we felt that due to the vast dynamic differences in operations that nzgirl needed to establish itself separately as an independent publisher to enable it to thrive and grow.
December 11th marks the 10 year anniversary of nzgirl.co.nz and over this time it has consistently grown and provided a solid financial return. This past year alone nzgirl produced a 60% EBIT. We believe under its new operational structure and management it will produce even better results for the shareholders.
In addition we have appointed wunderkind editor-in-chief from Flossie Media Group, Tee Twyford, as General Manager/Editor of nzgirl. She will be charged with executing a major overhaul of the site and meeting pretty substantial growth targets. Her impressive track record over the last 18 months at Flossie has given us the confidence that Tee will deliver exceptional results for both shareholders and advertisers.
The nzgirl office will continue to be based
