Our Secret Ingredient

Jamie and Joel are siblings born in Wellington and in 2020 Joel joined Jamie at Brightside Media. Their close friendship and strong family values is undeniably the secret ingredient and heart of Brightside Media. Growing up in a two-generation family owned repair shop they learnt the value of hard work from a young age and the importance of teamwork and business reputation that can only be built on strong values and a customer centred focus. They dreamed of building their own family business where they could work alongside each other creating a fun creative environment while doing something they were good at that would bring success to others. 

Central to their motivation is to inspire the next generation in the family with the pair conscious of their own legacy’s which motivates their future focussed outlook. They share the same professional ethics and business vision making them a dream team. With Jamie based in the North Island and Joel in the South Island together they have quite a reach.
