Industry social purpose organisation UnLtd announces New Zealand Advisory Board

UnLtd, the social purpose organisation connecting the New Zealand media, marketing and creative industry with charities helping young people at risk, has appointed eight members to its new Advisory Board for New Zealand.


The role of the local board is to support UnLtd’s mission through connection, influence and advocacy, to help UnLtd drive tangible social impact value in New Zealand.

The Advisory Board consists of Ben Dufty, Chief Operating Officer at GroupM; Jaana Collins, previous General Manager of Agency at MediaWorks; Josh Moore, Principal Partner at Pitchblack Partners; Nick Vile, General Manager at oOh! Media; Nikki Grafton, CEO at PHD; Penelope Brown, previous Managing Director of MBM; Sandra Scott, Sales & Partnerships Director at Vistar Media and Simon Lendrum, CEO at Commercial Communications Council.

Says Grafton: “I’m excited to be part of this Advisory Group and play a role in making a difference for young Kiwis at risk. We work in an industry that has so much talent, passion and influence and I love how UnLtd brings all those things together to create positive change for their charity partners. We can’t wait to help UnLtd grow the positive impact our industry generates.”

The Advisory Board held its first meeting on Wednesday 14 February to set the agenda for the year. The Board Members are tasked to help grow UnLtd’s programs including the Mediabook, Events, Social Impact Partnerships and Campaigns, to ultimately drive tangible social impact value to UnLtd’s charity partners, communities and society.

Says Brendan Muller, General Manager of UnLtd Aotearoa: “We’re honoured to have such a talented group of industry experts supporting us in our mission. Each of our Board Members brings a wealth of experience and great connections but also a real, personal passion for making a difference. We can’t wait to see what we can do together.”

The next event in the UnLtd calendar is the Big Clash industry cricket event on 29 February in Auckland that sees the industry unite on the cricket pitch to compete and raise funds for youth at risk. Limited spots are available through contacting Muller at
