Our team is continually looking at ways to improve on what we deliver to our customers, through our envelope-pushing marketing campaigns, innovative designs and impeccable customer service. We have evolved into a truly global brand. Our future goals are ambitious, but it is this ambition that drives us to become the market leader in sexy nursing lingerie.”
A qualified chartered accountant, Newton began his career in a practice in Auckland before joining Vodafone as a commercial analyst. He then moved to the UK, where he worked for Virgin Mobile and was involved in its initial public offering as a publically listed company. Following this, Scott worked at EMAP, a business to business (B2B) media group where Scott played an important role in restructuring all Business units through a sale to the Guardian Media Group. In his current role for HOTmilk, Newton will be based in New Zealand, where he currently resides with his wife Emma and their young daughter.
