Colenso BBDO welcomes fresh talent

Eleven new staff across creative, planning and account service

Colenso BBDO has expanded its team adding eleven new staff including two new art directors, two copywriters, a planner, as well as additional account management staff and production resources.

"Off the back of some new business wins and the increased volume of work from current clients recently we've been staffing up, in every department over the last two months, evolving our offering and skills to fit our clients' needs," says Nick Garrett, Colenso BBDO's managing director.

Award-winning art director, Brett Colliver has shifted from Clemenger BBDO Melbourne and joins the team as a Senior Art Director. Colliver has won Gold and Silver at Cannes, as well as winning One Show, D&AD and AWARD metal, and brings more than seven years' experience working with the likes of NAB, Cadbury and Sky Television to Colenso. He's joined by Beth O'Brian from TBWA, who has worked with brand such as Adidas and 2degrees, and raised eyebrows for St Matthew in the City.

Award-winning wordsmiths, Jesse Stevens (Ex-Barnes Catmur & Friends) and Misa McConnell (Rapp Tribal/DDB convert) have come on board as copywriters, and Angela Legge joins the team as Senior CRM Planner, bringing more than 12 years' experience in a variety of disciplines including data, direct, digital and above the line.

Colenso has also introduced additional digital production specialists to meet the growing demand for digital expertise and several new account people across the agency.

"The recent hires have very impressive resumes and ensure we continue to have an unfair share of the creative talent, and continue to deliver the best work for our clients," says Garrett.
