SYDNEY, Tuesday: Creative consultancy Deloitte Digital has announced the appointment of former Colenso BBDO legend Nick Garrett, to lead the growing business from NSW.

Garrett, who departed Clemenger BBDO two years ago, joins Adrian Mills and Matt Lawson as the third partner in Deloitte Creative, focussed on connecting creativity across the Deloitte business and client base.

Deloitte creative partner Adrian Mills said: “Matt and I have been looking for a Sydney-based partner to make this duo a trio for the last three years. And in our opinion, with Nick we’re getting the most accomplished creative business leader in the country, which is quite humbling.

“To have Nick on the same team, working toward the same goal at a time when we have so much momentum, is a step-change for the creative business and Deloitte Australia.”

“Deloitte’s vision to solve bigger problems with creative thinking is the right thing at the right time.”

In his time as ceo of Colenso BBDO, the agency nearly trebled in size, while twice achieving the “most creative agency in the world” accolade.

Garrett transferred to Clemenger BBDO Melbourne from Auckland in 2015.

Garrett said: “I am hugely excited to join Deloitte Digital and partner with Adrian and Matt. Their vision to solve bigger problems with creative thinking is the right thing at the right time, and the perfect opportunity for me personally to jump back into the industry.

“I have loved the last 18 months working for myself consulting across a huge variety of clients, from large, established organisations through to up-and-coming start-ups. But there are some things that instantly feel right, and joining the Deloitte Digital team is one of them.”

Garrett’s appointment is effective immediately.
