Noah is our editor-in-chief. He has been working in the gambling industry for well over a decade now and he has been on board with us for the last five years. He has a degree in marketing and English from the University of Auckland, so he certainly knows what he is doing when it comes to promoting our site and he is the one that keeps everything swimming with the current. We would be pretty lost without his skills, that is for sure.
Noah Otago was born on Kapiti Island. He is the second child and only boy in a family of four kids. His parents were secondary school teachers on the Island during Noah’s junior years. Noah moved to Auckland after obtaining his high school diploma, where he received admission into the University of Auckland. He majored in English and minored in marketing during his years of stay at the institution. His first job in writing was for the university’s website page where he wrote about major university events and reviewed students’ experiences on campus.
Noah's career began with a cadet job for a local journal in 1997. He assisted in the selection of news titles and wrote on projects assigned to him. In 1999, he held the role of a general news writer for a television station based in Christchurch. He worked on various articles on tourist attractions in the area, bringing light to the city’s heavily loaded English heritage. He later moved to Wellington to cover other news events for a partner company of the station where he worked for six months. Returning in 2000, he dived into political writing when migration records of Kiwis to Australia were quite alarming.
During the mid-2000s, he was a foreign correspondent for a digital media company, reporting from South Africa, the Philippines, and Europe. From 2003 to early 2005, he was one of the major writers at the company before moving to a competitor as a Political Editor. He covered some of the most important socio-economic and political events at the time.
From April 2007 until January 2008 he was the editor of a lifestyle magazine. He reviewed several restaurants, shops, and malls in Auckland to the great satisfaction of most business owners. In July 2008, Noah was reviewing a café near Auckland where he was alleged to have punched a server, leading to a conversation with the police and his exclusion from the café. That kind of wrapped up his time reviewing business places in the city, and he relocated to Wellington. Until early the next year, Noah was writing weeklies for an independent magazine and was severally invited to host talk shows on air. He equally wrote articles on the best attraction centers at the time, after which he got a job proposition to review gambling establishments. Noah began with land-based casino houses where he tested various games, reviewed the gaming atmosphere, and quality of games offered. He grew to enjoy slot machines and participating in card games. This later transformed into marketing campaigns for top gambling brands in the country as well as the promotion of new casinos.
Noah Otago was newly appointed as the next executive editor of a major online media company in 2010. He was responsible for overseeing the breadth of the company’s coverage and casino operations. He worked on various projects about email letters and reviews while actively participating in the training of editors throughout the company’s newsroom. Noah coordinated investigative projects to better understand customer demands and how to be ahead of competitors in the business. After about two years of service, Noah had redefined the role of an editor and was helping the company in the selection of leading titles of the moment. He was promoted to the position of Chief Editor after proving his worth through increasing positive statistics.
In 2017, Noah joined our company as a senior executive editor of our editorial and marketing department. In no time, his energy and experience helped in ameliorating the quality of content provided to our online casino users in New Zealand. He successfully reduced our budget by about 10%, while maximizing coverage of top market research areas. He brought along his expertise in marketing, research, and psychology which greatly helped the team fill loopholes in meeting our company objectives. Noah’s skills drew more opportunities for growth through the creation of numerous websites, the growth of our customer base, and the improvement of user experience. This quickly moved him to handle higher priority tasks where he reviewed and edited reviews on gambling brands, supervised the execution of countless projects, and monitored the implementation of best practices in the business.
Two years ago, Noah became the head of our editorial team and has never ceased to surpass his efforts in the accomplishment of our company goals. Passionate about gambling, especially online, Noah is highly well-placed to combine his years of experience to guide our company towards greater achievements. He currently plans, edits, revises, and formats content for all our English markets to ensure that our users get the best possible answers to whatever questions they may have.
Noah determines the guidelines of each publication made online to ensure that both the tone and scope are respected. He drafts content scopes for our editorial team weekly and reviews content before they are published. His creative vision, editorial skills, and leadership have made him the ideal person to lead our company toward more client satisfaction. Also, Noah’s open spirit has been a valuable tool in converting constructive criticism to better methods of work while exploring new possibilities. His managerial skills have helped create a familiar atmosphere where each member of the editorial team feels confident enough to work and grow.
Besides media and marketing related to his career, in his free time, Noah has reviewed several books by growing writers of prose and poetry. He sometimes makes anonymous reviews in papers to promote local businesses. Noah Otago is a friendly and kind person to be around with. He enjoys spending time with friends and relatives and frequently travels to visit tourist destinations.
