    TBWA Sydney MD role made redundant, Tanya Vragalis exits

    TBWA Sydney has made its managing director position redundant, with Tanya Vragalis leaving the role after three years.

    Vragalis, who first joined the advertising agency in 2018 as head of business management, has held key client relationships with Amazon, Optus, and CUB/Great Northern Brewing Co.

    She was promoted to general manager of TBWA Sydney in 2020 before assuming the role of MD in October 2021.

    Mediaweek has reached out to TBWA for comment.

    The news comes as the advertising industry grapples with ongoing economic pressures.

    In February, UM made redundancies across Sydney and Melbourne.

    Last month, two of WPP’s creative agencies – AKQA and Grey – were operationally merged, three and a half years after they were combined globally to form the AKQA Group. As a result, whiteGREY CEO Lee Simpson will leave the business because the whiteGREY brand will disappear.

    It marked the holdco’s second merger in six months. In October 2023, WPP consolidated Wunderman Thompson and VMLY&R into the single entity, VML

    Vragalis’ exit comes a week after TBWA’s joint agency venture built for Telstra, +61, launched its first work. The creative partnership – home to the largest advertising account in the country – also unites independent creative studio Bear Meets Eagle On Fire (BMEOF) and Telstra’s existing media agency, TBWA’s Omnicom stablemate, OMD.
