Karolina Galácz

She joined DDB in 2017 where she is responsible for the creative output of the country’s two biggest businesses, Deutsche Telekom and McDonald’s. With her leadership, the DDB team has won accolades from Cannes Lions, New York Festivals and London International in the last 3 years, along with a cool first for the country: the cover of Adweek for a piece for McDonald’s Hungary.

Her work has been awarded in multiple years at Cannes Lions, The One Show, London International Awards, Eurobest, Art Director’s Club Global, New York Festivals, Epica, The Webbys and several Grand Prix’s at Golden.
