The team’s Regional Director, Ziena Jalil, has been working with senior management at ENZ to build the capacity of the team to best contribute to New Zealand’s international education goals.

The team’s approach to strengthening New Zealand’s presence and engagement in the region has included the recruitment of staff to manage changes but also to fill gaps in experience and skills critical to success in five key markets for ENZ in the SSEA region which are currently India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Viet Nam.

Late last month Jane Goh joined ENZ as Marketing and Strategic Relations Manager, Malaysia, based in Kuala Lumpur. Jane came to ENZ from Mondelez International where she was the Communications Manager, having previously worked for Draft FCB and Taylor’s Education Group also in Kuala Lumpur. While at Taylor’s, Jane led a major project to re-energise alumni relations as well as looking after advertising and promotions across the group, and so she is well placed to boost New Zealand’s education profile, with the right skills to also strengthen important channels.

In early January ENZ also appointed Marketing and Strategic Relations Managers in Thailand and Indonesia.

Chortip has also worked at a marketing research company in Australia and a property company in Singapore. She holds a Master of Business in International Marketing from the University of Technology, Sydney, Australia.

Prior to Lloyd Morgan, Karmela worked for the Global Supply Chain Council, Essential Group, and the University of Pelita Harapan in events and marketing roles. She holds a Bachelor Degree in Marketing from the University of Pelita Harapan, Indonesia.

The Marketing and Strategic Relations Managers have responsibility for establishing and managing key relationships in market including those with government and the education industry. They also provide information on market opportunities for New Zealand, lead arrangements of ENZ marketing and promotional activities, and facilitate introductions and discussions with local stakeholders, with a view to growing awareness and student numbers.

  • The India team in Delhi, Jugnu Roy (Lead Events and Channels SSEA & Marketing and Strategic Relations Manager South Asia), Monika Chaudhary (Market Development Manager) and Shahbuddin Khan (Driver and Administration Assistant) and Mumbai based Shailaja Vora (Market Development Manager).

The SSEA team welcomes collaboration with the New Zealand education industry, to work together on SSEA’s two key goals of growing student numbers and facilitating introductions that will lead to education business.
