Gill Coltart

Engagement Director / Wellington

Gill joined DNA in November 2008. She has 15 years experience in the industry, including communications strategy, development and delivery, sponsorship evaluation and brand strategy. Gill has extensive experience in senior agency and client side roles in strategy and management, including for BP and Telecom, and for a boutique marketing agency in Wellington. 

Gill's strength lies in her calmness under fire and acute sense of the problem that needs to be solved. Gill works on a range of client projects and challenges that span brand, communications and CX for the likes of Willis Bond, NZ Childcare Assn, Opus, Tranzit, Steel & Tube and others.

She brings experience and clarity, a focus on the task at hand, pragmatism and an ability to stay on course - she is not one to let changing constraints and roadblocks ever get in the way of delivering the right and most high value solution to our clients. 

Smart, strategic, a tireless worker, she is 'always on’, which endears her to clients and colleagues immediately.

“There is enormous satisfaction in tackling a business problem, unearthing the real issue and then addressing this with a considered, pragmatic plan”.
