BBDO Dublin has expanded its creative team with the announcement of six new hires who will work across the agency’s creative platforms, including creative, social, interactive, experiential and creative tech.
The additions to the team come as BBDO Dublin recently announced significant new business wins and retentions, including the GAA and the Health and Safety Authority.
The new hires include Rob Murray who joins BBDO Dublin from Rothco|Accenture Interactive where he was Art Director. Aoife Cusack and Niamh Tumbleton, meanwhile, bring a social-first perspective to the agency, with Cusack having worked myVolts while Tumbleton previously managed YouTube channels, worked in music promotion and as BBDO’s social content community manager.
Elsewhere, Ben Clifford, writer and podcaster, returns to BBDO Dublin from the renowned john st. in Toronto, Canada where he worked on campaigns for Scotia iTrade, Loblaw and Boston Pizza.
Isabel Harvey and Ivona Poljak, both graduates of the MSc in Advertising at the Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT), join the team following a successful internship program at BBDO Dublin, where they have worked on campaigns for Avonmore, Mars, Rockshore, Carroll’s, University of Limerick and the IDA.
According to Dylan Cotter, Executive Creative Director, BBDO Dublin: “We are excited to be creating a culture here at BBDO Dublin that allows new talent and new kinds of talent to flourish. The combination of Rob’s invaluable experience and the enthusiasm and ambition of all our new hires is a perfect fit with our philosophy. Their ability to tell a great story, no matter the stage or platform is at the heart of what we do here in Sandymount.”
