AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND — After an eight-year sojourn, Jo Taylor has become the latest “boomerang” to return to College Hill, this time taking up the position of Managing Partner on the Bank of New Zealand account for Colenso BBDO.
Since her last stint at Colenso, Jo has been in senior account management roles at FCB and, more recently, Bastion Shine.
“I’m super excited to return to the creative hothouse that is Colenso BBDO, to lead the BNZ business once again. Being part of a team that is truly helping New Zealanders find a way to a better future, particularly in the current challenging economic environment, is really motivating. I can’t wait to get stuck in and make a difference,” said Jo Taylor.
Jo Taylor has been in the industry for and in her words while grinning widely: “Well over twenty years.” In that time she’s helped solve business problems for many of New Zealand’s most loved brands across multiple sectors.
“We’re delighted to have Jo back at Colenso. Her seemingly endless supply of positive energy and bubbly personality make her a great team member. At the same time, Jo’s savvy business mind makes her natural leader and an excellent fit for the bank. Jo made impressive contributions on major projects last time ‘round and I’ve no doubt she’ll add enormous value for our BNZ clients once again,” said Colenso BBDO Managing Director Angela Watson.
Beyond the office, Jo Taylor and her husband founded and now run their own wellness brand, No Ugly. Gaining the perspective of a start-up and small business adds yet another string to Taylor’s bow of extensive experience.
