Jenny Mak has been named creative partner at DDB Sydney. She makes the move from Ogilvy Sydney where she held the group creative director title. Her appointment is effective in January.
Over the course of her nine years at Ogilvy, Mak worked with Coca-Cola, Huggies, U by Kotex, and Transport for NSW amongst others. Her career spans some 20 years.
“When I met Jenny earlier this year, I was right away impressed with her energy and ambition. Not only has she made brilliant, insightful work on big brands, but she’s also a thoughtful and passionate creative leader. DDB’s people and clients will all benefit massively from her wealth of experience,” said DDB Sydney executive creative director Matt Chandler.
Mak joins a string of recent creative appointments across DDB Group, including Stephen de Wolf as national chief creative officer and Psembi Kinstan as DDB Group Melbourne executive creative director.
Her arrival in the new year will coincide with Sheryl Marjoram beginning as DDB Group Sydney CEO.
“I’m driven by making work that changes behaviour, affects culture, and transforms the fortunes of businesses, so I couldn’t resist the opportunity to join the team at DDB. Their creative vision totally connects with the kind of work I’m passionate about making, and I couldn’t be more excited to be joining an agency that has creativity at its core,” added Mak.
“From its iconic client list, to its impressive leadership team, I’m thrilled by the chance to join DDB at this point in its trajectory.”
