CB hears Colenso BBDO Auckland head of art Steve Back has been lured to arch rivals Saatchi & Saatchi, Auckland. Back, who will work with deputy CD, Toby Talbot, arrived at Colenso BBDO last year - hired by Talbot when he was CD - after a few years in London at various shops. Originally from Perth, Back has worked with current Leo Burnett CD Mark Collis at George Patts Sydney and later at Leo Burnett Sydney (where they created the awarded Stoli "The Truth" campaign amongst other notable achievements). When Collis left to join Grey London as CD, Back followed soon after to join him, but within a year Collis left, and soon after Back followed suit. He then worked in London at various gigs, including BDDH Partners and Walsh Trott Chick Smith.

How do you get to be a senior when agencies don't seem to hire midweights anymore?

Cheat on your wife, get fat, never have an opinion, make any scam idea work, laugh at all the right jokes, and probably not be female.

Doing what?

Going where?

Oh, sorry we were meant to give a fuck?

If all you self-aggrandising pin-dicks actually jumped off the PR treadmill and did some real work for a change then we might all have a reason to take notice.
