MEET THE TEAM THAT MAKES UP WIRED COMMUNICATIONS
With a wealth of experience across a broad number of clients in Europe and the UK – including having been at senior and board level positions with Shandwick in London – Karey established a successful consumer PR agency in London.
She moved to South Africa in 2000 and established Wired Communications in Cape Town. Karey prefers to be credited for her ability to strategize, conceive great ideas, motivate and deliver rather than for the years' experience.
Loves: People who make me laugh, grateful clients, caramel
Doesn’t love: Bad manners, bad grammar, beetroot and big spiders
Teena is Karey’s PA and doubles up as the Wired office manager too. She is efficient, pleasant and positive. Giving her best in all situations, Teena is hard-working, helpful, competent and utterly unflappable … and through all this she works smart too.
Her extensive experience has ensured that she’s been able to take to Wired like a duck to water and, with not a hint of a quack or a splash, she’s gliding effortlessly about the Wired pool and getting everything sorted out.
Loves: Nuts, Proteas, Labello and pretty things

Coming from a strong online media background, Tammy joined Wired a few years ago where she has really honed her PR and communication skills.
Her wit, drive and dedication to get things done are only eclipsed by her wicked sense of humour. She thinks above and beyond the brief and considers the broader implication of everything she does. As a real people person, she manages to mix her diplomacy, humour, sensitivity and creative flair with huge dollops of honesty which is both endearing and disarming and it keeps everyone on their toes.
Loves: Bath Salts, Sunday afternoon naps and a good cup of tea
Doesn’t love: Laziness, peanut butter and clowns
Senior Accounts Manager
A fun loving and funky extrovert who is bursting with energy, Elize offers a unique contribution to the team. She’s extraordinarily thorough and this combines very well with her passion for writing and communication. Add to this, a revelry in working under pressure and getting the job done plus a real thirst for knowledge and Elize’s consummate PR professionalism shines through.
She seizes every opportunity to network and embraces each moment as a new experience. Elize just loves to communicate and her ability to chat with excitement and vitality is a testimony to this.
Loves: Everything chocolate, most things leather and beautiful hands
Doesn’t love: Watery Soup, dirty toilets and nougat

Our canine team members are perky and enthusiastic. While their self-importance is sometimes misplaced, they take moderately seriously their shared duties of light reception and security.
Mind you, having welcomed visitors, their favourite preoccupation is to lie under the meeting table, tummies up, ever hopeful of a pat and a tickle.
Loves: chicken, chewies, chasing squirrels and creature comforts.
