Meet the HuntingHQ Team
The founder and driving force behind HuntingHQ is entrepreneur and long-time successful business owner, Marc Featherstone. With over 25-years marketing experience in the UK, Australia and New Zealand, Marc has spent 16-years owning and running Savvy Marketing, a successful marketing company which has acquired thousands of customers for his clients.
Marc spent the past several years as President of the Christchurch Pistol Club, taking their membership from 150 to nearing 500 and still growing – the largest pistol club in NZ. Marc is also a qualified and active Police Range Certifier, keeping him in touch with the grass roots of the hunting and farming community as he travels around the South Island ensuring compliance of range health and safety requirements.
Marc had this to say… “I saw a need – our farmers need help eradicating pests, our land and native wildlife needs a natural approach, and our hunters will pay for the privilege of ridding New Zealand of unwanted wildlife… it’s a win, win for everyone!”
A skilled creative, Liz has a significant personal interest in the development of HuntingHQ. As part of the Featherstone family she has literally plucked her father Marc’s ideas from his head and project managed the development of our HuntingHQ hunter management and bookings software from its conception.
She oversees a team of programmers, and will continue to develop solutions to support land management and pest eradication.
Liz is also the creative brain behind our incredible branding, and the design and development of the HuntingHQ website.
Liz shares… “As a keen conservationist and hunter, I am passionate about creating solutions for improved pest control to help protect and care for our beautiful country and native wildlife. HuntingHQ is a great fit with my personal philosophies and I am thrilled to be a part of its development.”

As a child Tania … “loved going hunting with my family. It was always a concern for our parents as to who else was out hunting at the same patch as us. So as an adult, to be able to find safe and unique locations for families to go for a shoot is the best part of my job.”
