DT’s CEO Brian Vella hopes the restructure will encourage growth. “Above all, the new structure sets the business up for better regional growth,” he said. “A key leader in every market allows us to scale better and provide more time and energy in emerging markets, while enhancing our offer in key markets such as Melbourne.”

Muscat previously worked at DT in the role of client service director, overseeing clients such as Myer, Bunnings and Officeworks. Vella said of Muscat’s appointment, “Alisia is one of my most trusted and proven team members, respected by the team and clients alike. She is going to be fantastic in this major role and I’ve no doubt will take things to new levels.”

Jeremy Smart has been promoted to general manager of sales and marketing

Jeremy Smart’s promotion to general manager of sales and marketing sees him take responsibility for the agency’s regional growth across Australia, New Zealand and south east Asia.

“We’re rapt to have someone with Jeremy’s talent and values in this role,” said Vella. “Jez has been instrumental in leading the agency’s new business strategy and building our brand and profile in Australia. In his new role, he will continue to drive these efforts further across all markets.”

The restructure also sees a renewed effort to expand DT’s reach internationally, with chief operating officer Tim Matheson focusing on DT’s Indian operations and Satajeet Deo appointed new GM of India.

“Having the right people focused on making the most of the excellent opportunities we’ve created in these markets, makes for an exciting road ahead throughout the region,” said Vella.

“Change represents new opportunities for our people with new roles and new responsibilities. This is one of the things I’m most excited about and proud of. All of these changes represent a strong commitment to the agency’s clients, people and values, and a strong belief in our future. It’s an exciting time for our team and professional development, the future of DT has never looked better.”

The promotions follow on the heels of DT’s merge with WPP AUNZ sister agency Tongue back in June, which bolstered its creative services.
