Josh Burt

Engagement Director / Wellington

Josh has significant experience in senior client-side marketing roles, managing a broad range of high profile strategic communication programs, with a particularly strong background in the telecommunications sector. 

This client experience provides Josh with a ‘duality’ of perspective – understanding the needs and challenges of clients and their audiences, while also knowing how to achieve the best results from his agency colleagues. As Engagement Director, Josh sits across brand, strategy, digital and service transformation initiatives for a range of public and private sector clients. His focus is on the value design can unlock for business - he is also a little obsessed with metrics and effect. To this end he is driving the mandate within DNA and leads our work in this area with key clients in Wellington.

He works closely with the likes of MSD, QV, NZFS, CYF and Grow Wellington. His role is to ensure smooth, effective and efficient working relationships and to maintain a view of all projects. Josh understands the necessity of balancing business needs with those of their users and is focussed on the best way for DNA to engage to deliver value against these priorities.

He is a strong strategic thinker and manager with a knack for understanding the challenges client organisations face so that DNA’s teams can set approaches to problem solving and delivery to meet those constraints.

Josh is a member of DNA’s Wellington Operational management team.
