Who we are


HT Group has over 20 years experience in sports partnerships and community insights. Founded originally by MD Mike Hall-Taylor in the UK, Mike used his past knowledge of 15 years in FMCG marketing and Formula 1 to create a company that truly understands the needs of both corporates and rights holders. When Mike emigrated to NZ with his researcher wife Clare in 2009 he recreated this successful formula this side of the world, but added a key component of research insights to the portfolio. Early clients such as Emirates Team New Zealand, New Zealand Post, and the family of Ed Hillary set the company on a growth trajectory.
