Condon is also saying farewell to the advertising industry after a career of almost 20 years.

“I’m going to miss being part of the DDB family immensely, but I’ve decided it’s now time to focus on my business interests outside of advertising and spend more time with my family, ” Condon said.

It is not clear what the other business interests are.

“I started my career at DDB Melbourne and it’s now ten years since I returned to the agency,” Condon added.

“It’s been wonderful to be part this brilliant company and I’m grateful for all the opportunities that have been afforded to me during my time with the business.”

Condon will be replaced by DDB Melbourne’s head of planning Lorenzo Bresciani.

DDB Melbourne’s managing partner, Oliver Lynch, will also leave the agency to take on the general manger role of DDB New Zealand in mid-May.

Lynch will be replaced by Lisa D’Amico, the group business director of DDB’s Telstra account.

Andrew Little, DDB Australia managing director, said: “It is with a mixture of both excitement and sadness that we farewell Nick. He has always worked with passion and commitment and I’ll miss him as a friend and faithful colleague.”

“Making the choice to appoint Lorenzo was an easy one.

“We’re delighted to have promoted someone of his calibre into the role. He’s an exceptional operator and has a great balance between strategy and creative. He already has a strong vision for the agency – based on his extensive international experience. ”

Lorenzo joined DDB in 2012 and has worked at international agencies BMP DDB as well as Lowe and Partners in London and Goodby, Silverstein and Partners in the US, among others.
