L-R: Matt Mortimer, Duncan Shields, Rich Gray, Dave Shirlaw, Michael Ashton, Scott Huebscher, Joe Greathead

DDB Sydney has hired creative director Scott Huebscher from Saatchi & Saatchi New Zealand.

The appointment reunites Huebscher with former boss Dylan Harrison, who quit Saatchis NZ to join DDB as ECD in September 2010.

The appointment is the latest in a series of hires and promotions at the agency, taking DDB’s creative department headcount to 52.

Harrison said: “There’s nothing like ‘try before you buy’ in this business, so I’m delighted to hire Scott for a second time. He’s a rare breed of hybrid creative director, a digital native who also gets big ideas. He’s perfect for driving our agenda of innovation across all our clients.”

Huebscher said: “I’m stoked to be working with Dylan again and to join such a talented team.  There’s a lot of positive energy in the building and not just in the creative department; everyone here is passionate about producing smart, world-class work and the recent campaigns that have come out of DDB Group Sydney speak for themselves.”

New promotions and appointments include Kylie Suttor, Scott Smith, Duncan Shield and Dave Shirlaw, who are promoted to group creative heads.

Matt Mortimer and Michael Ashton have been appointed copywriter and digital art director, respectively.

After internships at the agency, Richard Gray is now a junior art director and Joe Greathead a junior copywriter.
