Sydney executive director, Sasha Firth (left), has been promoted to managing director of GPY&R after almost 4 years with the business replacing Andrew Dowling (below, right), the previous Y&R group managing director of Sydney who has resigned.
Previously Firth has led the Brand Asset Valuator offering for Y&R Group with Keith Newton, consulting for clients on brand creation, identity, repositioning and corporate acquisition.
Says Firth on her promotion: "It's a privilege to lead the talented GPY&R Sydney team and work closely with VML's Aden Hepburn and IdeaWorks' Danny Lattouf to help realise our shared ambition for the businesses."
Says McDonald on Dowling's departure: "Andrew has been a major contributor to the Y&R business in both Australia and Indonesia over the past several years. His passion for our business will be missed and we wish him the very best with his next endeavor."
