Y&R executive creative director David Joubert has exited his role at the agency to join rival DDB Sydney as its new creative partner.
Joubert enjoyed a stint of almost 10 years at Y&R, having joined in 2008 as a creative director.
DDB Sydney confirmed the hire to B&T, with the agency’s chief creative officer, Ben Welsh, saying: “He brings a wealth of experience, everything from emotional storytelling to clever solutions. He gets big brands, and he’s a great guy.”
Comenting on his appointment, Joubert said: “DDB is one of the best networks in the world, and DDB Sydney one the best agencies, so the chance to be part of Ben and Tara [Ford]’s team in this exciting place was an opportunity too big to pass up.”
