Karen Kay 

Karen was influenced into joining the entertainment industry by her father who had a highly successful career in London, reaching the top of his field in record company management. Karen began her career in London working with a top agency (ICM), she then focused on marketing, public relations and event management.

Karen then moved to New Zealand and continued assisting major companies with public relations. In 1989, Karen was the driving force behind founding and establishing the world famous Variety The Children’s Charity in New Zealand and initiated Variety’s two biggest fundraisers - the Variety Club Bash and Gold Heart Day. Shortly after, Karen was approached by leading personalities to manage their careers, which saw the start of Karen Kay Management.

Throughout Karen’s career she has proven to be entrepreneurial and tenacious in seeking win win situations for her clients. Karen is a proud member of Women in Film and Television (WIFT).
