Early on in his career, Vaughan worked as a chef in many countries around the world as well as on a world class cruise ship. Upon returning to New Zealand he delved into business development and not long after that co-founded Joint Venture Marketing, a highly successful strategic marketing and sales management consultancy that aimed to help businesses realise their growth potential.
Vaughan Stanley first became involved in 2004, referring a number of his own clients to Zeald while he was working for the firm mentioned above. Seeing the great results, value and benefits that Zeald provided their customers, he said “I have to be part of this”. Vaughan joined Zeald part-time in 2006.
Having developed a very successful practice over 6 years, consulting both online and offline and achieving some outstanding results for clients, one of Vaughan’s clients offered him the position as CEO of a domestic renovation company (its Zeald website was generating over over $3 million annually). Consequently, he sold his consulting practice (and other businesses) to take up this executive position.
The desire to help businesses achieve great results online pulled Vaughan back to Zeald however, and he eventually accepted a full-time position. With his huge breadth of experience, knowledge, and proven results for clients, Vaughan is truly passionate about helping businesses generate amazing results online.
At home, Vaughan is happily married to Nadine, a graphic artist working in advertising. Avid travellers, they have been around the world together and lived and worked in four other countries. Along with his son, Fabian, he enjoys quality family time.
As a bit of a wine aficionado Vaughan has a 'modest' cellar, with predominantly New Zealand Riesling and Chardonnay, and French and Spanish Reds. To counter the wine indulgence, Vaughan is a regular jogger and keen skier, when time and snow conditions allow.
Vaughan is Google Certified with specialities in AdWords and Google Analytics.
