    Kinstan said that “the promotion of Giles will be no shock to anyone that’s worked with him, and for those that haven’t, this promotion is designed to ensure more of our clients and teams across the Group get exactly that opportunity.”

    Watson’s contribution to DDB Melbourne includes work on clients Porsche, Movember, Funlab, the National Gallery of Victoria, and Dulux. Over the past decade, he has also produced work for agencies including Howatson&Co, Clemenger BBDO Melbourne, as well as a number of agencies across Dubai and London.

    “For too long, to the detriment of the Australian industry, there’s only one way to progress your career as a creative, and that’s through people management,” Kinstan added.

    “I believe passionately in the role of craft to make all our work better, and passionately in our responsibility to show all creatives that there is more than one path to take in a creative career. I feel privileged to work alongside our Cowie and our growing creative leadership team.”
