Creative Technology agency DT has announced a raft of promotions and several new senior appointments including a new GM for Sydney, as the agency continues to evolve its Creative, Experience Design, Strategy and Technology offering in line with the demands of the modern CMO.
Following the recent appointment of international creative Jerker Fagerstrom (Executive Creative Director), DT has added more international experience, appointing Saul Floresas General Manager in Sydney, starting this week.
A management consultant who studied at Stanford University with more than 10 years’ experience, Flores has vast experience on digital transformation projects including overseeing an $800M online store.
“As digital transformation and innovation agendas go beyond the traditional realms of Marketing, the appointment of Saul and growth in our existing team sets us up well for 2015,” said DT’s CEO Brian Vella.
In other staff changes made as part of its expansion, leaders of several disciplines within DT have been made Partner. This includes David Pountney and Kacey D’Odorico to Managing Partner and Tim Matheson to Chief Operations Officer. “As partners, their mission is to work intimately together and lead the entire agency with a cross discipline mindset, with the simple goal of collectively creating the best work of their careers,” Vella said.
17 other promotions have also been made across the business reflecting the talent within the agency.
