The World: Sydney - Horner quits as DDB national creative director

Garry Horner, the national creative director of DDB Sydney, is leaving the agency after ten years. Richard Selbourne, DDB Sydney's creative director, will replace him in the role.

Horner will stay at the agency in a non-managerial role until the end of March, working on campaigns for Clean up Australia and Wrigley's Extra.

Horner said: "It's difficult to leave an agency that has been such a large part of both my professional and personal life. However, there is a wind of change blowing through our industry and I want to be part of it. DDB is a great agency but, after ten years, I believe I have achieved everything that I set out to do here."
