The combined creative and production offering at Now We Collide, Young said, keeps her excited about the agency.

“What has continued to excite me about Now We Collide is that we are an agency with a clear and unique proposition, combining the smarts and clever thinking of a digitally-minded creative agency with production mastery. I am excited to be taking on this newly created role which enables us to maintain the forward-thinking and strategy-led approach that serves our clients in the best way possible,” Young said.

In further changes to the agency staff, senior art director Kurt Toohey has been promoted to creative director, after four years with the agency. Sally Muul joined late last year as an account manager and producer, and art director Kate O’Donnell joined from Archibald Williams.

Maher said diversifying staff skills enabled the agency to make the most of 2020.

“While 2020 threw up unexpected challenges for everyone in the industry, we achieved solid growth because we were able to adapt quickly, transform strategies and deepen client relationships. Diversifying and strengthening our creative and client management teams gives us the perfect platform to continue achieving the best outcomes for our clients in 2021,” Maher said.

“I believe we’ve truly rounded out our incredibly talented leadership team with the promotions of both Naomi and Kurt, and the addition of Kate, and look forward to working with this great group of creatives on many exciting projects to come.”
