One Plus One Communications welcomes two new hires

Leading independent communications agency One Plus One Communications has today announced the appointment of two new team members. Erin McKenzie and Sydnee Krum join the business as Account Director and Senior Account Executive, respectively.

McKenzie, formerly the youngest ever editor of NZ Marketing Magazine before cutting her teeth in PR with fellow indie agency, Lassoo, brings with her a keen eye for a story and the ability to generate client cut-through. Her client experience includes leading New Zealand organisations such as Dairy NZ, Fonterra and Kiwi Property.

Sydnee Krum joins the agency after an initial stint in stakeholder engagement. Her previous career experience has seen her support clients across a variety of sectors such as infrastructure, transport, government, tech start-up and not-for-profit.

Managing Director, Kelly Bennett, says the business rounded out 2023 – its tenth year of operation – with a strong performance and is fortunate to be in a position to be onboarding such exciting new talent.

“I’m delighted to have both Sydnee and Erin join our growing business. We pride ourselves on hiring intelligent, curious and caring human beings and I’m confident with these two we’ve nailed the brief. We’ve got a really awesome year ahead of us and need all hands on deck so they couldn’t have arrived at a better time.”

Bennett says One Plus One is always keen to hear from outstanding applicants wishing to join the team. Interested candidates are encouraged to enquire at
