SkyCity has appointed Liz McNally into the newly created position of chief marketing officer.

Immediately prior to her new appointment, McNally was chief marketing officer for media and entertainment company, NZME, which owns newspapers and a network of radio stations and other titles across New Zealand.

Joining in August 2014, she was responsible for the rollout of the NZME brand created from the merger of APN News & Media and the Radio Network.

She has previously worked with Spark, (formerly Telecom) and with NewsCorp Australia. Most of SkyCity’s income and profits come from its Auckland hotel and casino operations with the company doing less well in its other locations.
