Grant Nelson
Executive Director, Co-founder of G&A Creative Agency

Grant works directly with many G&A clients including Solid Energy, Shilton Brown, Foodstuffs and Christchurch International Airport to name a few. His 35 years of creative, branding and advertising experience include some years in London and with Saatchi & Saatchi here in Christchurch. Grant co-founded G&A in 1984 with wife and business partner Mandy Nelson. Grant is driven by generating results through creativity. For Grant, there is nothing more rewarding than growing brands and creating successful marketing campaigns, of which many New Zealand and Canterbury organisations and companies have been on the receiving end. Not only is Grant a qualified designer and creative director, he is also a talented sailor of racing and leisure yachts known as ‘Nelly’ to sailing buddies and some school friends. When not at work or on a yacht, he can be found skiing, fishing, supporting the visual and performing arts, or socialising with friends and family over a good New Zealand wine.
