A note from DDB Group said: “With nearly 20 years’ experience in Hong Kong and China and over 100 local and international creative and marketing awards, Fung is a highly respected creative in the industry.

“His work for blue-chip brands, including McDonald’s, Manulife, Volkswagen, Philips and HSBC, has been recognised both locally and the world over.

“He will now bring his experience and understanding of the McDonald’s business back to DDB where he will be leading the development of integrated creative on this account, as well as on other local business.”

Fung is now part of the management team at the agency and will report to DDB Group Hong Kong CEO, Andreas Krasser.

Speaking about his return to DDB, Fung said: “I’m very happy to be back. DDB not only has great clients with great creative potential, but I can also feel that the agency overall is moving in an exciting new direction.”

Krasser said: “I couldn’t be more thrilled to have Frankie back – he and I used to work together on projects I’m still immensely proud of. He’s coming back on board with the same openness and collaborative spirit, but also with a new creative world view that is much more integrated than before.

“We also know that Frankie is exactly the kind of person we look for here at DDB, he is most certainly both talented and nice. I’m convinced he will do great things for us and our clients.”
