OMD Create works with McDonald’s, Coles, Suncorp, Telstra, AAMI, Estee Lauder Companies, NSW Government, Bacardi Martini Group and DuluxGroup.

OMD Create continues to adapt and diversify their service offering to deliver fully integrated solutions for their clients.

Hutley said of his promotion: “I’m thrilled to be working more closely with our OMD Create leads in Melbourne and Brisbane to expand our capability and evolve the OMD Create brand nationally. I look forward to seeing what more we can achieve together and to continue pushing the boundaries of creative work that we deliver for our clients.

Nathan Young, chief operating officer, OMD Australia commented: “Thomas has been with us for ten years and has gone from strength to strength over that time. He embodies the OMD ambition of driving performance for our clients, always done with integrity. This is clearly evident in the great work OMD Create continues to deliver for our clients and the industry recognition they have received.”
