Something I say a lot: ‘…’

At the completion of her HSC in 1990, Kylie was very lucky to start working for her parent’s highly regarded Public Relations and Marketing firm. What was initially intended to be only part time work while completing a degree in Mathematics, soon saw her add marketing subjects to her studies and has since resulted in a career of 34 years in the industry.

Over the last 30 years the marketing, advertising and PR world has transitioned through amazing technological advances and so she has been very fortunate to experience most of the disciplines, roles and trends in the industry. Although too many different roles and responsibilities over the years to list, it is the people she has worked with and for, that have helped shape the business owner and manager she is today.

After interviewing and employing a talented Graphic Designer from NZ in February 2016, it was very quickly apparent that Julz and Kylie had many common values and the same drive, determination, and passion to succeed. Both wanted to stay true to those values while moving away from the traditional marketing culture and gimmicks they had encountered and had lost enthusiasm for over their careers. The simple idea was to provide a business service that truly listened to the individual needs of each client and was a cost-effective resource for small business owners to gain a presence amongst the “big players” in the digital marketing space. Newcastle Creative Co was formed on that ideal in 2018.

Many of our clients are first introduced to her as “The Boss”, though as a true introvert, she prefers to be a quiet behind the scenes leader. One who is very rarely photographed. She views her role being responsible for the PEOPLE who complete the work, not the work itself.

In Kylie’s words, “They are a diversely talented, creative, dedicated, and hardworking team who are genuinely wonderful people and want the best for our clients. I am truly blessed to have each of them as part of the NCC team and consider them part of my family. I am always inspired by their willingness to push themselves beyond the norms of traditional marketing culture and get a great thrill seeing them achieve success beyond what they thought possible not just for themselves and our business, but also our clients.”

When she is not keeping tabs on all things NCC, you will find Kylie reorganizing the furniture and decorating her home, trolling home plans and interior design books and websites, or curled up with a good book and a coffee or red wine.

Her most treasured times are any of those spent with her fun-loving, very hard-working husband of 30 years, and their 3 adult children and their partners. Sharing travels, good fun, good food and of course good wine.
