New Head of Music for NZ On Air

We wish long-time music industry executive Teresa Patterson all the best in her exciting new role as the Head of Music at NZ On Air.

Ms Patterson has worked in the NZ music and arts industry for more than 25 years in a wide variety of roles across major music labels, artist management, major music festival management, marketing and PR, mentorship, head of the Music Managers Forum Aotearoa, and most recently as Partnerships Manager at the NZ Comedy Trust/NZ International Comedy Festival.

She has been closely involved with the establishment of SoundCheck Aotearoa, is a board member of the charitable organisation MusicHelps, and is a past member of the NZ Music Commission Board.  

Ms Patterson says, “I am excited to be joining the NZ On air whānau and the amazing Music team as the new Head of Music, and am proud to be the first Polynesian female in the role. Having dealt with NZ On Air my entire music career but especially as an Artist Manager, I am looking forward to adding my depth of industry experience to the team."
