Mango Aotearoa has been appointed by leading New Zealand software businesses, Propellerhead and its sister company Avid AML, to provide corporate communications expertise, growing its portfolio of B2B focused clients.
Propellerhead is one of New Zealand’s leading software developers, having designed, delivered and maintained large scale platforms for organisations such as Auckland Transport, Fonterra, NZ Rugby, Spark and the Ministry of Education for nearly 20 years.
Now attracting talent is a priority for Propellerhead in a tight labour market, and Mango has been engaged to cement the company’s standing as a destination employer for senior developers.
Mango helped launch Avid AML in March this year. The anti-money laundering company was co-founded in 2019 by Propellerhead’s managing director, Andrew Weston with Propellerhead’s developers behind Avid AML’s software.
Says Andrew Weston, managing director of Propellerhead and co-founder of Avid AML: “Earlier this year we appointed Mango to help us introduce Avid AML to New Zealand and other markets internationally. We were impressed with Mango’s work and quickly appointed the team to support Propellerhead’s goal to attract new talent. They will also continue to manage public relations for Avid AML ongoing.”
Says Claudia Macdonald (pictured), managing director, Mango Aotearoa: “Our winning streak in the corporate and B2B space continues apace with projects for Propellerhead and Avid AML. We are thrilled that after the successful launch of Avid AML, we have also been given the opportunity to build a tactical PR and social strategy for Propellerhead.”
