Matt is currently the managing planning partner at Grey London, and will join TBWA Sydney at the beginning of July.

Matt will partner Andy DiLallo, Nitsa Lotus and Paul Bradbury in the day-to-day running of the Sydney office across clients including Foxtel, David Jones, Virgin Mobile, ANZ, Airbnb, MasterCard, Tourism New Zealand, Gatorade and Apple.

Matt has also been a client at Carlsberg-Tetley and Virgin Drinks.

Matt is replacing Hristos Varouhas, who after eight years with TBWA Sydney has been promoted to global planning director for Apple at Media Arts Lab\TBWA Los Angeles.

‘Hristos and I have been close partners at TBWA for the last eight years. I am really happy for him as this is an incredible opportunity. Lucky for us we will still see a lot of H in his new role,’ said TBWA Australasia CEO Paul Bradbury.

‘We are very excited about the arrival of Matt Springate. Matt is a world-class strategic thinker and we are very pleased he has decided to join us. The new partnership between Andy DiLallo and Matt with Disruption™ and Disruption® Live at their disposal will be a very exciting time for TBWA.’
