Jan Faflík Named DDB Prague CEO

Jan Faflík has been promoted to DDB Prague CEO. In previous years he worked in agencies such as Saatchi & Saatchi, TBWA, Euro RSCG, and VCCP.

“After three-and-a-half years I am jumping back on the horse of advertising and communication. I can’t wait to work with the people in the agency because what we have managed to build here is really irresistible. The brands and partners that have tried us know what I’m talking about. The others have something great to look forward to. It will be an immense pleasure to work on such projects full of emotions as in DDB Prague,” he anticipates.

Jan replaces CEO Darko Silajdžić, who has been head of the agency since 2014 and now occupies the position of Group Chairman, where he will focus mainly on the development of the local group and the DDB network (DDB Prague, DDB FTW Worldwide, and Fame Factory).

“I am thrilled that my great friend and former colleague Honza is enhancing our leadership and that we have the opportunity to work together again. He is bringing us a very progressive vision for the agency’s management which will undoubtedly take DDB to the next level. I am also happy that I, personally, will have more space to lead priority projects and the development of our network on both the local and global level.”

In addition, in recent months Gavin Cheng has joined our DDB Prague team, taking on the position of CEO of DDB FTW Worldwide. This growing global network, specializing in gaming and esports and headquartered within the DDB Prague group, currently has 18 branches throughout the world.
