New CEO at Colour
Colour of Halifax has promoted Randy Newman to the position of chief executive officer. He joined the agency in 2016 as vice-president of media and strategy. Later he headed the opening of the firm’s New York office and became an executive vice-president in 2020. Former CEO Chris Keevill departed the company earlier in 2020 to head the Atlantic Lottery Corporation. Keevill remains the owner and chairman of Colour.
“It’s an honour for me to take the helm of a great agency with such deep roots as a creative force and digital leader,” said Newman. “I’ve witnessed firsthand how the team at Colour has expanded the agency’s Canadian footprint over the past few years and I’m excited to replicate that growth south of the border in 2021 and beyond.”
