As part of the new role, the pair will be responsible for nurturing and strengthening Colenso's account management team, in addition to continuing their current work with existing clients.

"We are thrilled to be able to promote both Scott and Paul; they are both top blokes and great leaders within the company. We know both are capable of building a world-leading account management team and will continue to improve our client service," says Nick Garrett, Colenso BBDO's managing director.
Wilson has been with Colenso BBDO for two years, having previously worked for DDB, and Singleton Ogilvy Mather both here and in Australia, and has worked with the likes of BNZ, Westpac, ANZ, Yellow, Lion Breweries, Restaurant Brands, Volkswagen and Hyundai.

Coldham has been with the company for seven years and also boasts a wealth of experience having worked with brands such as Burger King, MARS, IAG, Air New Zealand, Levi's, Frucor and BMW. Previous to his time with Colenso he was client side in marketing.

"Colenso is world-class creatively and we want to ensure that the account management department is also best-in-class," says Wilson.

"As the key link between our clients' business problems and the solutions we offer, we want to ensure that Colenso delivers not only the best work, but also the best working experience," adds Coldham.

The pair has worked on a vast number of award-winning projects and have Cannes Lions, D&AD, Spikes, Effies and RSVP awards to their credit.

The dual promotion comes shortly after Colenso appointed a number of new staff members, across creative, planning and account service. This comes on the back of a number of new business wins and an increased volume of work from current clients.
