Some great technology brands we help grow
Concentrate was formed in 2004, and has since worked with hundreds of New Zealand technology companies across virtually every industry and geography.
The technology firms we’ve worked with have featured on the covers of the New York Times and Time Magazine, been sold to multinational technology giants, launched on stock markets and won numerous awards.
As a HubSpot Diamond Certified Agency Partner and New Zealand first accredited HubSpot Master Trainer, Concentrate is also a key agency for HubSpot in Asia-Pacific and is bringing huge benefits to the sales and marketing programmes of Kiwi technology companies.
"As one of our first agency partners, Concentrate have played an important role in the growth of HubSpot in New Zealand. They have taken international best practice from HubSpot and applied it with real benefit to their clients, particularly in the hi-tech sector. As a HubSpot Diamond Partner, and with Owen Scott's appointment as the first and only HubSpot Master Trainer in the country, Concentrate are ideally placed to help their clients grow better with the inbound methodology and the HubSpot Growth Platform."

Surprise Fact: I’ve run two half marathons
Digital Marketing Specialist
I worked as a Marketer in the Business to Business Tech sector for a period of 4 years before deciding to change my career direction into a more technical role. This crazy idea led me all the way to this beautiful country, New Zealand from Sri Lanka, a tiny Island in South-East Asia.
From the day I landed in New Zealand my whole life changed with new experiences and opportunities. As a business major with zero technical expertise, I graduated with a postgraduate qualification in Business Information Systems from the University of Canterbury. With this, I expanded my career opportunities from Marketing to Data Analytics, Business Intelligence and Software QA Testing.
All that in hand, I joined Concentrate as a Digital Marketing Specialist that complements my Marketing and Technical skills and a lot more cool things!
Outside work I’m a singer, a personal fitness enthusiast, and a painter. I love swimming, hiking, and any sport that kicks off some adrenaline!
I have come all the way from Sri Lanka to Christchurch to learn how to ride a bicycle. And guess what, now I’m commuting to work every day! New skills ticked!
