VCCP Sydney has announced that executive creative director and creative partner Gary Dawson has departed by mutual agreement.
Gary joined the agency in 2016 after a four-year stint as a creative director at M&C Saatchi working across CommBank, NRMA Insurance, CPA Australia and wotif.com. Prior to this he was deputy creative director at Leo Burnett.
Says Gary: “Being the ECD at VCCP Sydney has been a privilege and I’m proud of the work we’ve created together across a diverse number of challenger brands and creative disciplines. It’s been an exciting ride and I’d like to thank the team I leave behind for their brilliance and shared ambition. I’m particularly proud of not only winning but being nominated twice in three years, for AdNews Small Agency Of The Year, the multiple pitch wins and subsequent business growth as well as introducing an integrated design offering. With some great work in the pipeline, I wish VCCP and its clients all the best for the future.”
Confirming the departure, VCCP chief executive officer Andrew Holt said: “We thank Gary for his passion and energetic contribution to both our work and our business over the past three years. It’s been a pleasure working alongside him and we wish him well in his next venture.”
VCCP will announce plans for a replacement in due course.
