Return to About Us

Jo is the company’s General Manager – keeping the wheels turning across ninetyblack’s business functions of publishing, design, web, distribution and, Speedy Signs & EmbroidMe Taupo.

Driven by the company values, all she wants her team to do is “get S.H.I.T done” – Successfully, Honestly, with Integrity, and as a Team (which includes the client)… and the team are her biggest priority, with a large portion of her time focused on fostering a strong culture to drive business growth. ninetyblack was established in 1997 and Jo wants to continue the company’s reputation for success by steering a team that consistently delivers inspired creative, quality products and professional service to the highest standard.

ninetyblack has been part of her life for 19 years, but she still finds the odd bit of time for mountain biking, walking, paddleboarding, and chilling out at the lake or beach with her family. She’s also an enthusiast in the end product of grape fermentation.
