Stefanie Martens

Phone: +64 21 02243782


I am a German public relations professional with almost ten years of experience as an inhouse PR practitioner. As I have worked for mid-sized companies in the financial services and information technology sectors with small communication departments, I can draw on a broad communications background. My responsibilities included not only public relations, but also marketing, crisis and internal communications as well as investor relations.

I am passionate about intercultural communication and the unique communication opportunities that social media have on offer for organisations who want to engage with their stakeholders.

In 2018, I moved to New Zealand in order to do my Master of Communications at the Auckland University of Technology, with majors in Strategic Public Relations and Social Media Management. I hold a German Diploma and French Bachelor of Honours in International Management.

  • I am a travel addict: Wanderlust has plagued me since I was a little girl. During a one-year world trip, I lost my heart to New Zealand.
  • My most exciting 45 seconds by far were during my skydive over Taupo 12 years ago. But I would NEVER EVER do that silly thing again…
  • I lived in North Carolina as well as in Southern France and think that living abroad spices up my life.
  • Although I am a “wanderluster” at heart, I consider my hometown Hamburg as one of the most beautiful cities on earth.
  • I am happily married to my best friend and high school love and we have two gorgeous daughters.
  • Tramping is my form of meditation.
