Thrive Auckland Grows
2017 has marked a huge year of development for Thrive’s New Zealand office. We kicked things off with the acquisition of local agency EAST, and went on to build out our portfolio with a vibrant mix of clients.
Having only opened our Auckland operations officially in mid 2016, we are proud to have spent this year working with some of New Zealand’s biggest and best-loved consumer brands, including Kmart, Subway and New Zealand Natural. Our unparalleled Trans-Tasman service offering, allowed us to drive results for a diverse set of clients – from technology powerhouse Cisco to global underwear brand Triumph – on both sides of the ditch. Our Kiwi contigenet proudly flew the flag for home-grown businesses too, from the world-class art destination Sculptureum, which received blanket national media coverage upon launch, through to the NZX-listed Precinct Properties, who we work with closely on Commercial Bay, the development that’s set to completely transform Downtown Auckland.
Phew, after the year that was our Kiwi office will be heading to the beach and taking some time to relax before coming back in early January to hit the ground running for a year that’s already shaping up to be our biggest yet.
