McGechan (pictured right) has been appointed to general manager following a successful acting period, and an extensive local and global search.
Since joining Columbus in early 2018, McGechan has led the Victorian team to continue delivering value-driven performance marketing strategies - most recently as group client partner, working alongside a number of Australia's blue-chip clients.
McGechan's previous retail experience and expertise with retail clients such as David Jones, Kathmandu and Officeworks, across both Australia and the UK, made him the ideal candidate to lead client solutions at a market level.
McGechan's appointment highlights Columbus' ongoing approach to nurturing talent throughout the business, with 25 internal promotions in the past 12 months.

McGechan will continue to report to national managing director, Mitchell McBeath (above left).

Says McBeath: "Guy is a phenomenal, people-centric leader.  During his acting period as general manager, Guy has been instrumental in fostering talent, embedding our culture, and creating a great workplace for our people.  We are proud to promote Guy to lead our VIC, WA and NZ teams, and look forward to seeing him continue to flourish in this new role."

Says McGechan: "I am delighted and honoured to have this opportunity to lead the VIC, WA and NZ teams. I'm lucky to be working with a group of very talented individuals during a time of significant growth at Columbus, and am excited to lead the team as we deliver market-leading work for our clients in 2019."
