LONDON, UK — D&AD has announced that Jo Jackson is stepping down from her part-time role as CEO to focus on her other business interests. Jo’s tenure has included the successful revival post-Covid of the annual D&AD Festival and healthy growth in both Professional and New Blood Awards programs.

The organization’s Board of Trustees thanked Jo for her service and expressed interest in further collaborations.

With her departure, D&AD builds a new leadership team and promoted COO Dara Lynch to the role of CEO; and Awards and Operations Director Donal Keenan to the role of COO. Tim Lindsay remains Chairman, and he and the Board offer them their congratulations.


D&AD’s mission will continue to be to celebrate, stimulate, and enable excellence in commercial creativity, to develop talent from emerging through to senior leadership, and to campaign for a fairer, more diverse industry in the belief that this creates better outcomes for all.
