Australian group Cato Design and Leask Associates in Wellington have joined forces to meet the increasing demand for design services in New Zealand.
The joint venture, called Cato Design, is chaired by Ken Cato, while Mark Leask is managing director.
The venture will exploit the two group’s local knowledge and international skills to build brand and corporate identities, says Leask. “This is particularly relevant to New Zealand companies looking to broaden their business base on the competitive international stage,” he adds.
“New Zealand has always provided terrific business opportunities. We have worked with many New Zealand companies over the years and recent developments in Australasia have prompted the move to expand,” says Ken Cato.
Cato Design already has an office in Aukland and is affiliated with companies in the UK, Hong Kong and the US.
The client list of Cato Design in New Zealand already includes Tranz Rail, DB Breweries and Clear Communications.
