DDB Group Melbourne ECD Grant Rutherford leaves agency to start next creative chapter

grant.jpgDDB Group Melbourne executive creative director, Grant Rutherford today left the agency to start the next chapter of his creative life.
 
Says Rutherford: "DDB has been my life. It goes without saying it's hard to leave a fantastic team you've loved and nurtured for so long. But firstly I'm going to dedicate more time to the Snowdome Foundation, a charity I co-founded to raise money for research into blood cancers. Snowdome is dedicated to the memory of my beautiful daughter Chloe, who lost her battle with Leukemia over two years ago."
 
Says Andrew Little, group managing director: "I have the highest respect for Grant and his motivations for wanting to spend time building on his work with Snowdome Foundation. I'd like to thank him for his enormous contribution to the agency and wish him the very best."

Says Marty O'Halloran, chairman and CEO: "Grant epitomises DDB's talented and nice ethos.  He is held in the highest regard across our network and will be sorely missed by his many friends and colleagues. We hope to have the opportunity to work with him again in the future."
 
Rutherford has spent the last four years at DDB Melbourne. In that time the agency has been crowned Agency of the Year multiple times and received recognition at the highest level for its work. Details of Grant's replacement will be announced early next week.
