Karyn is known for successfully leading one of New Zealand’s largest and most successful PR agencies at the time, as CEO, in a 13 year career at Acumen. Prior to this, she held roles in another international PR agency and in-house at Telecom New Zealand.

While managing offices in Auckland, Wellington and Sydney, a diverse, blue chip client portfolio and a very large consulting team across all areas of the communications spectrum (corporate, consumer, events, research and creative), Karyn has gained deep and wide experience across a myriad of business and communications challenges and opportunities, as well as extensive professional networks.

She has provided stewardship for some of our country’s best-loved brands, is a confidante and trusted adviser for businesses and high-profile individuals facing crises, understands the capital markets and acts for several listed companies including managing M & A projects and capital transactions, and can crack engaging ideas to motivate consumer behaviour.

Whatever it takes.

Karyn is widely regarded as a leading industry expert on issues, crises and reputation management and as one of our most respected PR professionals regularly represents New Zealand as a judge in international industry awards programmes.
