Operational Safety Risk Management at Air New Zealand
"I worked with Artie at the Yellow Pages (Telecom New Zealand) for several years. He is a livewire of creativity and drive, along with a pragmatic and commercial approach.
He is talented with anything and everything web, technical as well as business analysis. He can take a brief meeting with a customer and turn it into a fully functional ecommerce website.
I highly recommend him."
Digital Strategist, Bluebird Digital
"Artie joined the Content Team at Vodafone as a contractor halfway through the build phase of the new Vodafone NZ website. He was literally dropped into the deep end with a new CMS and very tight deadlines.
Not only did he perform to a really high standard - he thrived under the pressure with a smile on his face. No challenge was too big for him and he willingly took on any task that he was asked to do.
This ‘can-do’ attitude was invaluable during a very crucial stage of a long project. Artie quickly became an indispensable part of the team and was recently offered a permanent position."
Creative Sidekick, Vodafone NZ, Editor at keepingupwithnz.com
"Artie is forever helpful in his role and brings a more technical knowledge to the team. His level head is a real asset in this fast paced environment.
He will make a great mentor and trainer for the team as it grows and evolves over time. A CMS superstar and real team player."
"In my experience it’s rare to find a person who combines both outstanding creative and technical ability - the vision to conceive an idea then to flawlessly implement that idea; Artie Ward is one of these people.
Many times in his work with the Yellow Pages online and with private clients I have seen Artie pioneer and execute innovative projects from inception to delivery.
On many occasions Artie single-handedly was able to exceed the output of many multi-functional project teams."
Managing Partner at Tilt Digital
"I really enjoyed working with Artie at Yellow Pages. He's got such a calm and laid-back approach, but it's backed up with seriously deep knowledge.
His ability to quickly assimilate new technology, and then effectively teach it to others was legendary."
