Understanding your business is our priority

With well over a decade of experience in the advertising industry, our founder Ben Patston has seen it all. Born and raised in England, he played Rugby Union at a professional level before making the move to New Zealand in 2010. He continued to play for North Otago alongside some of the country’s most iconic players, before hanging up the boots and making the move into the advertising industry. It was Dunedin where he met his now wife, Lisa Jane, and went on to have three children — Micha, Freddy and Leo, who are, of course, at the centre of everything he does.

Before launching Patston Media, Ben worked in print, radio, TV and various digital spaces for MediaWorks and Allied Press (Otago Daily Times) over several years. Through the relationships he built and nurtured during that time, he has since garnered an extensive portfolio of contacts, networks and creatives — all of which have proved invaluable in terms of providing his clients with all the tools they need to nail their advertising. From copywriters to designers, social media experts and large-scale advertising specialists, Patston Media has all the boxes ticked.
