Katie Macdiarmid
GM of Digital Products, NZME

Katie is the GM of Digital Products at New Zealand Media & Entertainment. Her passion is leading people with purpose, driving collaboration and developing high performing teams.

She is committed to how employee experience should complement a customer first mindset to create powerful outcomes.

Working at NZME since 2018, Katie has led the digital teams through a period of significant change, responsible for the design and development of their Digital Product Experiences. This has involved multiple operating model iterations, bringing together the ebb and flow of the news cycle with supporting agile frameworks and mindsets.

Katie has 20+ years’ experience across a range of industries in Delivery, Operational, Strategy and Commercial roles, and an MBA in Strategic Management with a thesis exploring how disruptive technologies can transform industries. Outside of work, she likes to set off on the odd ultramarathon – the perfect test of endurance and purpose.
