DDB Sydney has promoted Tim Woolford and Tommy Cehak to creative partners in roles that will see the highly-awarded duo lead the Volkswagen business within DDB Sydney.

Their promotions come in recognition of successful creative year at DDB Sydney including their contribution to award-winning work, including Foxtel’s ‘Grave of Thrones’, Volkswagen Polo ‘Unfail’ and Volkswagen Amarok ‘Too Powerful for TV’.

“Tim and Tommy have created effective, original and award-winning work throughout their careers,” said Tara Ford, executive creative director, DDB Sydney. “They are passionate about this business and bring high standards to everything they do. I have no doubt they will continue to succeed with their new position on Volkswagen.”

After winning AWARD School VIC in 2012, Woolford started his career at TBWA Melbourne where he was responsible for Cannes Lions winning campaigns including ‘GAYNZ’ and ‘Holdtight’ for ANZ Bank. He relocated to Sydney and joined DDB in 2018, where he has continued to prove his creative talents on blue-chip clients.

Also joining DDB in 2018, Cehak has held a number of roles at Sydney agencies, including M&C Saatchi, Droga5 and The Royals, producing acclaimed work on clients such as Tiger Beer, Woolworths, Qantas and more.

“I’m honored to be given the opportunity to help lead such an iconic DDB client as Volkswagen,” said Cehak. “I can’t wait to continue the award-winning and effective output with the talented team around us.”

Woolford and Cehak replace Jade Manning and Vince Osmond who recently departed DDB Sydney after five years to join Special Group.
