Publicis Dublin have promoted Peter Dobbyn to Creative Director. The award-winning copywriter was returning from holiday and found out the news when picked up in arrivals with a sign bearing his new title.

Dobbyn has been with Publicis Dublin for a numbers of years and was a key member in the agency being awarded #1 Creative Agency in Ireland by the Immortal Awards. His work has been recognised in The One Show, D&AD and ADCEurope for clients including Virgin Media, Gas Networks Ireland and Iarnród Eireann.

ECD Ronan Nulty: “Anyone who has worked with Peter knows how much he loves the game, loves ideas and is relentless in wanting to solve problems and leave a mark with his work. Naturally for Pete we couldn’t just go with a straight announcement, although he probably would’ve had a better idea than this – just another reason to make him Creative Director. It’s great news for the whole team here and our clients.

Peter Dobbyn:

After a delayed flight with 3 sleep deprived babies, this was a nice way for the fam to find out I'm officially now a Creative Director. It's usually a bit weird coming back to work after a holiday. Not this time. Can't wait to get stuck in, exciting times ahead with the team.
