Clemenger BBDO Wellington Appoints Director

Clemenger BBDO Wellington Appoints
Andrew Holt as Managing Director

Andrew Holt has been appointed Managing Director of Clemenger BBDO Wellington, effective 1 December 2010.

Andrew is currently a Group Account Director at Colenso BBDO in Auckland where he has been responsible for managing the Vodafone business across the Clemenger Group and the highly awarded Yellow account, since January 2009.

This appointment recognises Clemenger Group’s commitment to maintaining a world-class offering in the Wellington market, says Clemenger Group CEO Jim Moser.

“I have known and respected Andrew for years – first in Sydney and now in Auckland. Since his arrival at Colenso BBDO almost two years ago, he has made a hugely positive impact on the agency and most importantly, on our clients’ business. Andrew was always destined for an agency leadership role and we’re thrilled that his next challenge is within the Clemenger Group New Zealand.”

Clemenger BBDO Wellington Executive Creative Director Philip Andrew says: "Andrew will be an exciting addition to our business here in the Capital. He has a strong strategic skill set and he also 'gets' the work. He is a passionate advocate for challenging creative work converting to business success. I can’t wait for him to start and we are all looking forward to the time when he will call Wellington home."

Andrew replaces Clemenger BBDO Wellington veteran Kevin Stroud who spent 20 years with the company before resigning in April this year to pursue other interests.

“I’m honoured to be joining Clemenger in Wellington. It’s an iconic agency with a great pedigree of fantastic work and it’s full of talented people. I’m really looking forward to working with them to create a new chapter of great work for our clients,” says Mr Holt.

Hailing from the UK, Andrew began his career at BMP DDB in London in 1997 working across major clients including Anheuser Busch, British Gas, Kraft Foods and the Government Central Office of Information.

He moved to Australia in 2003 and worked for Lowe Hunt where he became a Client Services Director. In 2006 he joined the management team at Saatchi & Saatchi Sydney, leading the Foxtel, Fox Sports and Aussie accounts alongside new business wins for Macquarie Capital and NSW Department of Commerce.

Andrew’s replacement at Colenso BBDO Auckland will be announced in the coming weeks.
