Saunders said: “The opportunity to help shape a brand as iconic as Macca’s is pretty special, seconded only by working with the exceptional people at DDB Sydney. I’m thrilled to be given this opportunity by Tara [Ford] and Ben [Welsh].”

Ford, the agency’s chief creative officer, welcomed the duo to the agency.

“The combination of Dan and Jack is going to be nothing short of dynamite. Joining the already talented team on the account, I can’t wait to see what they can do and where they can creativity take this iconic brand,” she said.

This year, DDB Sydney added McDonald’s social and digital accounts to its longstanding creative duties. The agency has also had a record year of new business, bringing on Netflix, LinkedIn, the Red Cross and an expanded remit with Johnson & Johnson.

Nunn said of his appointment at DDB: “I’ll miss all the legends at Special and enjoyed every minute of my six years there. But I’m absolutely thrilled to be joining such a talented, ambitious team at DDB. The opportunity to work alongside great people on a great brand is really exciting.”
