Our Team

John Mercer

Portfolio Director

I head up our HR, Legal, public policy and public sector conference portfolio and manage the team of conference producers who create our world class conferences for these audiences.

I’ve been with Brightstar since 2018, when I relocated to New Zealand from the UK. I’ve been in the conference business for 18 years, working for a wide range of different kind of organisation, from big publishing companies to membership associations to small boutique conference businesses and have delivered events of all scales around the world.

In my spare time I am a passionate fly fisherman and love nothing more than being out exploring the rivers and saltwater of New Zealand.
