Maria Devereux has stepped up into the role of executive creative director at Colenso BBDO, effective immediately.
Moving on from creative director, Devereux says the move has been a fast one but brings with it exciting new opportunities.
“Things are rapidly changing and I’m excited by the opportunity to influence both the work we do and the way we get to great work”.
Devereux returned to the company in 2016, and since then has made agency history twice, she was internationally recognized by the AdWeek Top Creative 100 in 2019. And in 2018, she led the team behind the agency’s second most awarded campaign ever: Pedigree SelfieSTIX.
Levi Slavin, chief creative officer at Colenso says Devereux joining the executive team will bring it into the new era.
“With more and more clients transitioning to agile models, we have to fundamentally change how we operate as an industry. In Colenso’s case, this means providing greater access to the best creative thinkers and leaders. And Maria is exactly that.”
