The pair have previously worked on Volkswagen’s ‘Unfail’ campaign for its Polo model, and the Amarok ‘Too Powerful for TV’ campaign.

Cehak joined DDB Sydney in October 2017 as a senior art director. Prior DDB, he spent over a year as senior creative at The Royals and was an art director at the Australian arm Droga 5.

Cehak said in a statement: “I’m honoured to be given the opportunity to help lead such an iconic DDB client as Volkswagen. I can’t wait to continue the award-winning and effective output with the talented team around us.”

Woolford joined the agency as senior creative in March last year. Previously, Woolford spent over six years as a creative at TBWA in Melbourne.

Woolford said: “We’ve got some big shoes to fill in a post Jade and Vince world. They’ve been inspiring custodians of the Volkswagen brand and are two of the most talented and nice guys in adland. I’m excited for the opportunity to continue that legacy.”

DDB Sydney executive creative director, Tara Ford, said in a statement: “Tim and Tommy have created effective, original and award-winning work throughout their careers. They are passionate about this business and bring high standards to everything they do. I have no doubt they will continue to succeed with their new position on Volkswagen.

“The best is yet to come for DDB Sydney, this new creative line-up will continue to deliver big, tough work for our big, tough, real clients. And strive for more. Exciting times.”
