Adrian Haira

Marketing Executive


As a member of SKYCITY’s Marketing team, one of the largest in New Zealand, Adrian develops campaigns and promotions that attract visitors to our Auckland hotels, convention centre and Sky Tower.  “It’s a really busy environment but a lot of fun too.  I’m fortunate to work with a collaborative team who’re energetic, enthusiastic and passionate about what they do.”

After completing high school in Invercargill and working in hospitality for a year, Adrian knew a business degree would broaden his future career prospects.  “I didn’t receive much career guidance during school and it wasn’t until I attended a university open day that I discovered marketing.  Four years later, I graduated from Otago University with a Bachelor of Commerce in Marketing & Management.”

Adrian then sought a change of scene and moved to Australia for 18 months, where he held a sales management role.  He returned to New Zealand 2012 to work at SKYCITY and was recently promoted to Marketing Executive. 

“My long term career goal is the top job: General Manager of Marketing.  SKYCITY is growing and constantly changing, which can be a little unsettling for some but I enjoy it; it makes my job more interesting and challenging, and gives me opportunities to learn and progress my career.”
