Together we’ll win clients’ hearts as we continue our growth across the Asia-Pacific region.”

In his role, Stevens will be responsible for delivering innovative and disruptive work for the agency’s clients. He will also serve as the face and voice of creativity for the team in Australia, collaborating closely with the leadership team to build processes and structures that elevate the quality of creative output.

Stevens said: “The decision was simple, DEPT’s rapidly emerging as one of the fastest-growing digital agencies in the world, and I want in! I’m looking forward to creating world-class, groundbreaking solutions that harness the power of technology, ensuring brands are as dynamic and engaging as they can be”.

The last 12 months have brought significant growth for DEPT in Australia, with the addition of several new clients including Pit Viper and Grill’d. With offices in Sydney and Melbourne and a staff of over 150, the digital agency has cemented its position as a booming strategic and innovation hub in the wider APAC region, delivering impactful digital solutions that resonate with the values of its clients. Globally, DEPT was recently named Network of the Year and Agency of the Year at The Webby Awards for the third consecutive year, proving it is setting the standard for tech and marketing.
