Colenso gets gold with Auckland Festival sponsorship

Not content just being the chief executive of the Clemenger Group, Jim Moser will also take up a role on the Board of Trustees for the Auckland Festival, with Colenso BBDO becoming a Gold Sponsor of the 2011 event in return for advertising services.

Festival chief executive, David Inns, says having Moser on the board and Colenso, which was named New Zealand’s most creative and effective advertising agency for 2009, as an agency partner will provide the 2011 festival with a huge amount of marketing expertise.

“Our goal is to establish the Festival as the number one cultural event for Auckland and we are excited to be working with the likes of Jim Moser and Nick Worthington and his team to make this happen.”

Moser has a strong history in supporting arts and creativity and prior to moving to New Zealand was involved with Opera Australia, the Sydney Theatre Company (STC) and the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) in Australia. He also sits on the board of the National Institute for Dramatic Art, a world-renowned theatre training school that boasts the likes of Mel Gibson, Baz Luhrman and Cate Blanchet as alumni.

Moser says: “The Festival is a celebration of creativity so it is the perfect fit for Clemenger Group and Colenso BBDO. From what we’ve seen the March festival looks to be the most exciting yet, and we look forward to working with the team to make it a must-attend event that Aucklanders are proud of.”

He joins other board members Richard Waddel, chair; Victoria Carter, deputy chair; Rick Carlyon; Roger King; Roger MacDonnell; Toni Millar; Ilona Rodgers; Heather Shotter; and Fred Ward.

Industry welcomes KPEX, but also asks a few questions

While yesterday's announcement by the nation's big four publishers about the creation of a joint ad exchange has largely been welcomed by the industry as positive move that could, if effective, serve to keep a bigger chunk of ad spend in the local market rather than feeding it into the international exchanges, it has also raised a few questions that will need to be answered as it comes into effect. We chat to the big brains at Countdown, Foodstuffs, OMD, Vivaki, Acquire Online, ANZA, Bauer and TVNZ about their thoughts on this move.
