The Results First Team
Nick has over a decade of diverse experience in online marketing. He has proven business knowledge and the ability to make smart, innovative decisions; he isn’t afraid to do things differently.
As founder and managing director, Nick is very proud of the way he’s built this business from the ground up. Working here is his passion, although his commitment to staying healthy and fit is well known around the office. The impact of his leadership style is evident throughout Results First’s international network.
Kristina is the General Manager of Results First. Her career with our organisation started in Australia, where she spent three years as an SEO specialist, managing a client base and implementing smart onsite strategies. Her outstanding coordination and client service skills saw her quickly rise to become a quality assurance manager before her move to New Zealand. Kristina’s degree in digital media helps drive her creative, lateral-thinking approach to challenging situations.
When she’s not in the office, you’ll find Kristina letting her hair down at music concerts or relaxing while cooking or visiting art galleries.
