DDB NY Welcomes New GCD, ACD

Sonya Grewal, who, just to remind you, was most recently creative director on that skydiving Hotels.com effort out of Y&R Chicago, has packed her bags and headed to New York to assume a GCD role at DDB. Grewal started her career at JWT New Delhi before moving to Chicago to take on senior art director roles at Cramer-Krasselt then Ogilvy. Now at DDB, she will serve as group creative director on the Hertz and Empire City accounts.

Along with Grewal, former Johannes Leonardo art director Dave Tomkins is joining DDB New York as an ACD and will work across the agency’s accounts. Tomkins joined Johannes just last November along with copywriter Iain Nevill. Maybe 11 months does count as tenure these days.
