LUMO Digital Outdoor has announced ex-Colenso BBDO Managing Director Scott Coldham as the newest independent director to its board.
Since leaving the agency in January, Coldham has been named as Chief Marketing Officer with NZ technology company Whip Around and local menswear brand Asuwere.
LUMO Chairman Shannon Walsh says Coldhams’ addition as an independent director is a great chance for the businesses to get more insight into successfully fostering and growing agency relationships. “Bringing in an independent director to our Board is about broadening our horizons and challenging our perspectives on what agencies and advertisers are seeking from businesses like LUMO,” says Walsh.
Coldham becomes the sixth board member of the growing independent digital out of home outfit, which has recently embarked on a hiring spree.
For Coldham, this is a pivotal moment to be joining the business as it continues to grow upwards and outwards.
“I am excited about joining this ambitious business at a time when I hope to add a little bit of value from the boardroom. I have been very impressed with what Phil, Kent and the team have achieved in such a short space of time and I am looking forward to staying connected and giving back in a small way to an industry that has given me so much,” Coldham remarks.
Phil Clemas CEO of LUMO says Coldham is a perfect addition for an independent board member.
“Scott has done incredible things across the years, notably in a creative agency environment. His knowledge and guidance will be pivotal to our success and growth moving forward, and we’re very much looking forward to having him involved with LUMO as we look towards the next evolution of digital out of home.”
