Scott Whybin, the chairman, regional creative director and founder of Whybin\TBWA Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland has resigned from the agency. After 21 years leading Whybin\TBWA, Whybin will step back from the executive management of the business in April 2016.

Says Keith Smith, president international global markets, TBWA: "Scott has helped to nurture and develop a significant number of the most talented and successful people working in the industry today, many of them are still working at Whybin\TBWA.
