After a busy period of pitching, YoungShand has secured three new client wins for the first half of 2019.
After a long and rigorous process, YoungShand has been appointed to work with Tourism Holdings Limited (THL), managing the creative and media aspects of its Discover Waitomo business.
Duncan Shand, YoungShand managing director, says the appointment is a great addition to its suite of existing clients: “We’re delighted to have been given the remit to look after both the creative and media business. We’re looking forward to driving some strong growth and promoting THL’s attractions in the Waitomo region.”
Says Ollie Farnsworth, general manager of marketing and revenue management at THL: “We’re thrilled to partner with YoungShand. They showcased a balanced creative and media approach that felt right for Discover Waitomo, so we’re excited to see what we can achieve together.”
YoungShand has also been appointed as an All-of-Government supplier and have immediately begun working on a new project which will be launched in the next few months. Prior to this appointment, the agency also completed a website build for the Prime Minister’s Business Advisory Council.
Says Anne Boothroyd, creative director, YoungShand: “It’s a great validation to have been appointed to the All-of-Government list. As a passionate, independent, Kiwi-owned agency, we can’t wait to get stuck into some impactful projects for the wider New Zealand community.”
Lastly, health company Vitaco has appointed YoungShand as its digital media agency on a project basis across all of its brands, including Healtheries.
Says Julia Van De Coolwijk, head of NZ marketing, Vitaco: “We appointed YoungShand as we wanted an agency that really understands digital, and has the proven ability to focus on optimisation to generate the right sort of results.”
These series of wins come off the back of a string of new hires for YoungShand over the past 18-months, bolstering the creative, account service, digital and media offering within the business.
Says Shand: “We’ve entered an exciting period of growth that reflects our team’s ongoing hard work and passion for our current clients, and of course the new partners we’re onboarding.”
