Damien Venuto


An award-winning writer, editor and podcaster with more than a decade’s experience at some of New Zealand’s top publications, Damien Venuto has developed a keen eye for a good story.

Having worked with large and small businesses, he’s learned that every organisation has a unique perspective to share. His real skill lies in dissecting complex information and pulling out something that will resonate with a wide audience. He was most recently at the New Zealand Herald, where he hosted and developed The Front Page podcast into a product that delivered two million downloads within two years. Before that, he was the Herald’s online business editor, working closely with some of the country’s top business writers and editors to feed the news beast daily.

He also previously edited NZ Marketing magazine, winning the Supreme Editor of the Year award at the 2017 Magazine Publishers Association Awards.
