04 November, 2019 by Andy Young

Kollaras & Co have confirmed changes to its executive team, with brand marketer Clive Coleman joining the company as Executive General Manager – Commercial and Doug Misener promoted to Chief Operating Officer.

Coleman will use the experience he has gained working with brands including Coca-Cola, Great Northern, Yellowtail, Squealing Pig and 19 Crimes to lead the Kollaras Marketing and Brand Development teams.


Kollaras & Co Managing Director, John Kollaras, welcomed Coleman to the company, saying: “Clive brings a wealth of knowledge and invaluable brand building experience to the Kollaras team.

“We are really looking forward to seeing Clive continue to empower our teams and drive our brands forward.”

Coleman joins Kollaras & Co from Treasury Wine Estates, where he spearheaded the successful Squealing Pig campaign and championed the first talking wine label for the popular wine range 19 Crimes.

The appointment of Coleman sees Misener promoted from the Executive GM position to COO, just over a year after joining Kollaras & Co.

John Kollaras added: “This is recognition of the dedication Doug has for the business. Doug has been with our business going on 14 months, and within that short timeframe, has driven sustained market performance, and implemented greater commercial agility.

“We are grateful for Doug’s commitment to the success of our people, and our business.”
