Colenso BBDO has added to its talent pool with the appointment of Ahmad Salim as a Group Business Director.

A native of Scotland, Ahmad cut his teeth at The Leith Agency on Grolsch, Sol, and the pride of Scotland – IRN-BRU. Since then Ahmad’s worked on high profile regional and international brands at TBWA\London and RKCR\Y&R London including Vodafone, PlayStation EMEA, the BBC, Absolut, Jameson and John Smith’s.

Ahmad explained why he chose to work at Colenso when he moved to New Zealand, “Colenso’s reputation for consistently delivering world class work year after year is known globally and the opportunity to move to New Zealand and be part of the team was a no brainer.”

Angela Watson, Head of Account Management at Colenso, said: “We’ve had a fantastic run of new business and creative success over the last year so it’s great to add some fresh thinking and a new perspective to the great team we’ve got at College Hill. Ahmad will be responsible for looking after Samsung, Burger King, Mars and Sky City and taking the work that we’ve done already to the next level.”
