Andrew Dowling

FOUNDER & MANAGING DIRECTOR

After two and a half decades of leading creative & digital businesses, Andrew along with his DO Co-Founder Tom Ormes decided it was time they used their expertise to directly benefit the clients they work for, rather than the global network agencies they were previously employed by. Andrew has led teams across most categories from global FMCG, Tech Companies, Airlines, Automotive and Government Departments. Before DO, Andrew was with Y&R Group ANZ as Group Managing Director of GPY&R, VML & IdeaWorks. Andrew has worked extensively throughout Asia and Australia, leading agencies, teams and senior client relationships. Answers to Sharkie (or Bruce from Finding Nemo).
