John Allen, the Chief Executive of New Zealand Post, will speak on the power of customer insight.
After joining NZ Post in 1994 and holding a number of senior management roles, John Allen was appointed CE in May 2003. A true ‘marketer’ in every sense of the word, John is passionate about relationship marketing across all media, not just mail, and has been instrumental in the direction of the Privacy Laws in New Zealand.
Allen says the key competitors to direct mail are other media, far more than other “mail” service providers.
John talks about the international trends driving growth of the marketing communications industry and the research into consumers and media that NZ post has undertaken to address the challenge of promoting direct marketing, and in particular direct mail, alongside other channels.
