Colony Promotes Simon Buutveld to Executive Creative Director for the Asia-Pacific

Joining Colony in September 2020, Buutveld has led creative for several client wins.

Simon Buutveld has been appointed Executive Creative Director role at Colony to lead the Asia-Pacific team.

Joining Colony in September 2020, Buutveld has led creative for client wins including Kina Bank, UNICEF, Jumbo Interactive, Queensland Country Bank, Starlight, Colgate-Palmolive, Goodman Fielder PNG, and Tisa.

Colony founder Matt McCarthy said: “Si is truly impressive. He has a rare intensity and passion for solutions that go beyond advertising. He’s had a big impact on our business so far and is the right pick to evolve our team into one of the most effective in the country.”

 
 

Buutveld added: “A role that lets you craft new solutions and ways to do business is a dream for me. Our Asia-Pacific client base offers the unique opportunity to start with a blank page. Often, we’re selling an entire category rather than a brand and it’s really exciting.”

He will lead a team of five creatives and nine designers across three locations – Brisbane, Cairns and Port Moresby – with plans to keep bolstering Colony’s creative stable.
