Our Team

About Us

Quest has attracted a talented team of individuals who are seriously good at what they do.

Some of the friendly Quest team

Each contributes his/her unique skills to allow Quest to provide the full spectrum of marketing agency services. Each person plays their part, motivated by a common interest – seeing you succeed.

 

Having been at the forefront of marketing solutions since 2005, we’re comfortable in our own skin. With a multi-award-winning marketer at the helm, we’ve provided marketing solutions to businesses large and small, in NZ and overseas.

 

Our long list of satisfied clients confirms the quality of our delivery, and after years of success, work largely comes through word of mouth. This it allows us the luxury of balancing work with lifestyle. To this end, Quest’s head office is nestled in a plum orchard in sunny Hawke’s Bay. You could say we’re living the dream.

When you partner with the team at Quest, you can expect experts who…

 

  • understand the pressures that busy business owners face and do their darnedest to make the process as smooth and easy as possible.

  • speak your language (although we can bombard you with marketing buzz words if you’d like us to).

  • put their heads down and get on with driving results for your business.

 

We’ve been described as a small-town marketing company with big-city capabilities. If you like the sound of that, meet the creative masterminds who make up Quest below.
