International Board of Directors
Nick studied Graphic Design in the early 80's at St Martin's School of Art in London. He joined BBH London in 1986 under the watchful eye of Sir John Hegarty. After 10 years at BBH Nick joined AMV BBDO under David Abbott.
In 2003 Nick joined Dave Droga on the Publicis worldwide creative board and moved to New Zealand, first as ECD at Publicis Mojo, and later as ECD at Colenso BBDO in Auckland, where Nick remains as Creative Chairman.
In 2013 Colenso BBDO was recognised as the "Best Agency in the World" by the Big Won Report, and "Agency of the Decade" by both YoungGuns and Campaign Brief. Nick has been personally recognised by D&AD as one of the Top 10 copywriters of all time, and No.1 ECD in the world by the Big Won Report.
When Nick isn't working he likes to fish, ride motorcycles and retreat to an eco house on Great Barrier Island with his partner, two sons and his chickens.
