Our Team

Rod McKenzie

Owner

Rod completed a degree in Applied Science with a major in computing methods. He’s worked many jobs in the IT industry and also has sales & marketing experience. With Karen, he started Think Local Digital in 2015 after running a local newspaper.

He has a wealth of practical knowledge when it comes to helping SME’s grow their online presence.

Being an avid tennis player who is very competitive he spends a lot of his free time on the court. He finds no more enjoyment than beating young ‘up- and-coming’ players who think he’s an ‘old hack’.

Growing up on a farm in Gippsland he has lots of scars. Example – his younger brother cut off his little finger with a tomahawk while ‘chopping wood’.

When not in front of a computer he can be found walking the family dog ‘Diesel’.

He’s been married to Karen for over 20 years and has 3 beautiful kids.

Karen McKenzie

Client Manager

Karen worked in a variety of industries including hospitality, shipping, fundraising for NRMA Careflight and more before moving into advertising and marketing for small business and tradespeople.

She and Rod began Think Local Digital in 2015 after several years of running a paper advertising product. As a client manager her duties include liaising with clients during website builds and Google Ads campaign set ups and management. She also does the invoicing and chasing up money. So if you are late paying bills, you’ll be talking to her a lot.

In her spare time she enjoys spending time with family and friends and loves hosting gatherings at home where everyone can mingle and catch up.  She spends her Sunday mornings at Church where she volunteers in a few different capacities. She loves helping people.

She’s into Keto so don’t offer her anything with sugar or carbs – her willpower is questionable.

Carrie Rogers

Google ads Guru

Carrie has spent time working a range of different industries up and down the east coast of Australia. From managing cinema complexes, working in both the insurance and finance industries, and even spent time working at a school camp. She finally found her space working at Think Local Digital with Rod and Karen.

She has known both Rod & Karen for many years and couldn’t say no to a job offer back in 2018. With her undying need to shop online, surf the internet and analyse data, she has found the right job to match her hobbies.

Working for TLD gives Carrie the perfect work/life balance that is sought by many. She is the mum to two amazing kids living on the Queensland coastline and enjoying everything the perfect lifestyle has to offer.

In her spare time, she enjoys gardening, spending time outside and running around after the kids. She loves ‘Dad jokes’ and won’t hesitate to tell one if the opportunity presents itself.

Chris Mattern

Digital Marketing Assistant

Chris’ role within Think Local Digital is a digital marketing assistant. The key activities performed each day are around website design and maintenance, office administration, updating Google Business Profiles and monthly SEO activities.

She loves her cat (Devon Rex) “Freddie” and relaxes with gardening, fixing stuff around home and has been known to do the odd rollerblading!

Collins Kiprono

WordPress Master

Collins is Think Local Digital’s resident WordPress guru. He’s the one we turn to with any design or technical issue relating to WordPress websites.

When Collins is not solving the worlds WordPress problems, he can be seen hiking and going to the beach at least once a month.

He grew up in a rural area and moved to the city for school. He loves it so much he hasn’t moved back.

He has a degree in Business Information Technology and at the moment is taking short courses on Computer Science. He enjoys troubleshooting and figuring out what can improve user experience on a website.

I recently enjoyed working with Think Local Digital, a top-tier Digital Marketing Agency. I needed help boosting my online presence, and their SEO and Google ads services were exactly what I was looking for. The level of expertise they possess in these areas is truly impressive. Not only did they help me improve my online visibility, but they also provided me with exceptional website design and updates, including website hosting services. The quality of their work and their timely delivery exceeded my expectations. Additionally, their mentoring sessions were invaluable to me and my team. We received valuable insights into maximizing our digital marketing efforts and driving traffic to our website while optimizing our conversion rates. Overall, I highly recommend Think Local Digital to anyone needing digital marketing services. Their professionalism, expertise, and fresh perspective on delivering results are outstanding. I do not doubt that partnering with them will be one of the best decisions you make for your business.

Karen, Rod and their team have taken my failing marking/website and turned it around 100%. The work and quality of leads generated by their expertise has been amazing. I was very despondent and getting ripped off by other marketing agency's. The other Marketing agency's had very poor results for investment and there were never ending ploys to want you to spend more and then we can show results. With TLD they had a clear plan/strategy to achieve the results i was looking for whilst being cost effective. I can't thank them enough for the way they have transformed my digital online presence. Look forward to future with the TLD team.
