Adele Ibbotson has been promoted from Director of International to Vice President of the Department, which she has led since 2021, and Senior Account Director Vicky Tupper has been promoted to Director of Film with oversight of all film projects. Arundel and Ibbotson originally joined DDA as assistants almost fifteen years ago. Tupper joined the firm in 2018.

Arundel’s new role will see her lead the direction of the UK Consumer Division, including new business and expansion. She previously orchestrated Rich Cain’s hiring as Director of TV and the recent hiring of Laura Fields, who joined as Director of Brands PR.

Tupper joined DDA following her previous role at independent distributor eOne. Tupper will now have oversight of DDA’s UK Film campaigns and joins Sam Ross (Director of Film Awards), Cain, and the newly appointed Laura Fields (Director of Brands) in reporting to Arundel.

“The promotion of these three long-serving executives is a testament to DDA’s commitment to developing talent and providing opportunities for them to shape the future of the agency,” said Partners Lawrence Atkinson, Dana Archer, and Neil Bhatt.

“With their years of hands-on experience, they are best placed to support DDA’s continued growth in key areas of the agency’s business in the UK and internationally alongside the company’s US expansion, as we build out our consumer and brands services worldwide.”
