Phil Whitehouse appointed to run DTDigital Sydney

Phil Whitehouse, the digital strategy director of London-based agency The Team, has been appointed by DTDigital to run its new Sydney office.

Whitehouse joins the agency as general manager.

Brian Vella, MD of DTDigital, said: “When we launched DT Digital Sydney last month our commitment was to hit the ground running with a strong and credible team aligned under one leadership structure. Phil’s appointment is the first step towards fulfilling this commitment and he takes the helm of the Sydney team with a raft of operational and strategic background experience to his credit.”

Whitehouse’s career to date includes a stint at LBi before he moved to The Team.

“I’m hugely excited about the challenges ahead,” said Whitehouse. “Success has come to our Melbourne team through its unique, full-service offering, including specialization in high growth areas that are not typically part of the offering from ad agencies. We look forward to capitalizing on Melbourne’s success in a highly competitive and fast-moving market.”

The news comes a few weeks after STW Group sold one third of DTDigital to WPP.
