GRC Partners is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr John Redwood to the position of senior consultant in the company’s Auckland office.

“I’m delighted John has chosen to join GRC Partners,” said Managing Partner Mark Watts. “John is a highly experienced communications professional, having worked for a number of large companies and consultancies in New Zealand.”

Over the past 15 years, John has provided public affairs counsel, corporate communications advice, and crisis management expertise to clients from a range of industries, including agriculture, energy and shipping.

“John’s experience as a business journalist and a long-held interest in public affairs have given him a sound understanding of New Zealand’s business and political landscape, and a broad professional network.

“This mix of skills, outlook and connections make him an excellent fit for GRC Partners’ client roster in New Zealand and also for the Australia-based companies we support alongside our sister company GRACosway,” said Mr Watts.

“I’m looking forward to working alongside Mark Watts and James Watson at GRC Partners and helping them continue to do great work for their clients in New Zealand and Australia,” said John.

John is not just a communications professional. He is also a trained chef, a skill which has further endeared him to friends, family and colleagues. When he’s not in the office, John also finds time to follow the fortunes of the Hawke’s Bay provincial rugby team, playing golf and walking his Airedale dog, Commodore.

John will commence his new role at GRC Partners on 21 October.
