“Under John Domas’ leadership, the Y&R Group of agencies has gone from strength to strength, with major business wins including Indonesia’s biggest bank BCA, FMCG giant TPS Food and adidas. Winning Merck as both creative agency and for strategic strength shows how Y&R Group has grown not only in size but in capabilities. We thank John for his outstanding contribution and wish him all the best in his exciting new role.”
