The Reboot Communications co-founder will be stepping away from day-to-day duties, joining Buy Somewhere developer, Somewhere New as a Senior Producer at the end of this month.
Kolan will remain involved with Reboot Communications as a company owner and director, but will limit his involvement to campaign direction, new business and high level strategy. He had been working with the Sydney based mid-scale game and technology studio part time in the lead up to the transition.
In announcing his full time departure, Kolan praised Reboot Communications co-founder and director, Ben Rawlings, telling MCV Pacific, “Ben has been better than the best imaginable work partner. Everyone should be so lucky to have someone as brilliant, funny and supportive as a business partner – and Reboot continues unabated by my stepping away from the daily workload.”
Kolan continued, glowingly reflecting on his five years with the firm, “We’ve fostered a lot of incredible brands through Reboot over the years – and equally incredible staff, who’ve gone on to be snatched up by major publishers. It’s been a point of pride for both of us, I think. And that will continue with a new generation of hires (and brands) to be announced.
