Morriss says assuming the role of creative director fills her with immense pride.
"It’s been exciting to see the creative landscape transform, particularly with more female representation across industry leadership," she says.
"Being acknowledged in this capacity is truly gratifying and I’m excited to continue making world-class work and fostering our wonderful and talented creative department.'
Morriss is a also proud member of the Aunties and has taught at AWARD school for many years. 
Psembi Kinstan, Group ECD at DDB Group Melbourne, says he couldn’t be prouder of Morriss and everything she’s achieved over the decade plus here.
"It is a blessing for any agency to have talent like Becky matched with her one-of-a-kind generosity of spirit. She makes us all better," says Kinstan.
"This promotion, coupled with Sarah’s recent joining, only makes our creative bench of world-class talent all the stronger. Go Becky. Go Sarah.”
