Penny Lyons

After I completed a Bachelor of Business Studies majoring in Marketing and Tourism, it didn't take me long to get into the advertising arena, firstly with Telecom Yellow Pages, then a great move into Radio with Radioworks at the time as an account manager, I excelled and loved this challenge while dealing with clients expectations and providing solutions for their businesses.

Over the last 20 years I have not only turned Mediaworks Taupo into what it is today, an extremely powerful local medium, but also became a Regional Manager covering the Gisborne, Rotorua, and Coromandel areas, this helped me to share with businesses in Taupo, other ideas and solutions from other successful market sectors and businesses.

After years of working with Shop Taupo and now Town Centre Taupo we have provided many successful promotional ideas to help Taupo CBD to be as vibrant as it can in today's times.

I also have representation as the Chamber Representative on the Economic Great Lake Taupo Board, and the I have been with the 100% Lake Taupo Charitable Trust since day one which rasied over $1 million dollars for Charity since 2009.

I am now a Director/Shareholder of the Newly Established Sothebys International Realty in Taupo, it is a new challenge and Im loving every moment, with the Brand being very well received into the community.
