DDB makes top creative appointments

Omnicom-owned DDB has nabbed a top creative from Saatchi & Saatchi Sydney and given its acting executive creative director a permanent role.

Damon Stapleton will take on the role of chief creative officer, commencing July 1.

The agency has also confirmed Shane Bradnick will continue in the executive creative director role. He has been acting ECD since Andy Fackrell’s departure late last year.

The duo, who worked together in South Africa at TBWA\Gavin\Reddy, will work closely together across DDB’s entire portfolio, the agency says in a release.

Mr Stapleton had spent two years as ECD of Saatchi & Saatchi Sydney before his appointment.

DDB's key clients include Westpac, The Warehouse, McDonalds and Sky TV.
