It is with great excitement that we announce that Kate Belsham has joined the Ziba Creative team in the role of Marketing Assistant.
With a strong commitment to providing clients with exceptional marketing and excellent service, we felt it was important to supplement Ziba’s rapid growth with the addition of a new full-time role within the business.
Naturally, Ziba’s Managing Director Jasmine Robertson is excited to welcome Kate onboard, “I’m delighted to welcome Kate to the team. She has grown up immersed in the thoroughbred industry and brings with her valuable industry experience.”
“Kate’s initiative and passion for marketing have always impressed me. She has a fine eye for detail and possesses an incredible work ethic,” said Jasmine.
The opportunity to work for an equine marketing agency gives Kate a huge thrill, “To have been given the opportunity to join the Ziba Creative team means a lot to me as it is an area of the thoroughbred industry I have always been passionate about”, said Kate.
Kate grew up in the Wanganui region, where she was exposed to the thoroughbred industry from a very early age. With a trainer as a father, horses have always been in Kate’s blood.”Growing up in the racing industry, my love for the horses was instant. I was often upset if dad didn’t wake me up bright and early during the school holidays to tag along in the feed room or at the track. I have always loved the horse”, reflects Kate.
After completing a Certificate in Business and Administration at UCOL, Kate decided to make a move north to Matamata where she joined Te Akau Racing.
“I absolutely loved my time at Te Akau. I was learning daily and got plenty of opportunities. Spending time at the sales, during inspections and post-sale, I was able to see the syndication process. I helped to market the purchases with videos, photos and copy and was also often behind the camera during track work and trials.
“With a busy schedule planned for the summer period, Kate looks forward to meeting all of Ziba’s wonderful clients, “I look forward to challenging myself and continuing to develop my knowledge and passion. I am also excited to get out and about to meet Ziba’s clients and all of their beloved equines!” said Kate.
Kate’s first day with Ziba Creative is December 7 (today!), welcome aboard Kate.
