DDB Sydney has appointed Dan Bolton as Creative Partner. Bolton brings more than 14 years experience to the agency, having previously held roles at Howatson + Co, Havas London, M&C Saatchi, DDB Aotearoa New Zealand, and Droga5, where he led work on clients including Qantas, Coors Light, Sealy, John West, Heinz, and McDonald’s.
In his new position, he’ll focus on Westpac, a client DDB Sydney has partnered with for the past 12 years.
DDB Sydney Executive Creative Director Matt Chandler said: “We’re so bloody lucky to have Dan join us. He’s made a huge impact on the work already, with some brilliant stuff in the pipeline. Beyond that, he’s talented, he’s nice and he has a glorious beard.”
Bolton add: “I feel really lucky to join the team at DDB to work on Westpac. An iconic agency and iconic Aussie brand that wants to do proper brand-building work. What more could I want?
“The whole team is both super smart and kind and there’s plenty of positive energy in the office ahead of some soon-to-be-released work.”
