Paul Wallace and David Ross are getting new business cards at DDB. Wallace has been promoted to executive creative director and Ross made creative director of DDB Toronto.

The award-winning creatives each have more than a decade of experience at the Omnicom-owned agency, where they’ve worked on top-tier clients including Subaru and Cialis, among others. The work has earned the pair multiple awards, including Cannes Lions and One Show Pencils.

Previously the ECD position was jointly held by Todd Mackie and Denise Rossetto, who moved to DS+P (formerly Doug & Serge) in February and became partners in the business.

“Paul has consistently delivered innovative business solutions for our clients over the years, has instinctively taken on the creative leadership on several key accounts and has done an outstanding job coaching our junior teams,” said Kevin Drew Davis, chief creative officer of DDB Canada, in a statement.

“He has been building to this promotion, and I find it extremely rewarding to recognize him for all of his hard work, dedication and impact.”
