Founder and Group CEO
After twenty-five years of leading Creative, PR & Digital businesses, Andrew along with his DO Co-Founder Tom Ormes decided it was time they used their experience and expertise to only benefit the clients they work for, rather than the network agencies they were previously employed by. Andrew has led teams across most categories from global FMCG, Tech Companies, Airlines, Automotive and Government Departments. Before DO, Andrew was with Y&R Group ANZ as Group Managing Director of GPY&R, VML & IdeaWorks. Andrew has worked extensively throughout Asia and Australia, leading agencies, teams and senior client relationships.
Founder and Group ECD
Tom has been working in the creative advertising industry for a loooong twenty-five years. In that time, he has lived and worked in Sydney, India, Dubai, Colombo, Singapore, New York and Amsterdam, and remembers at least 85% of it. Tom has led creative teams in most of those markets and has specialised in behavioural change campaigns across all disciplines. He has won awards at all major advertising shows, and together with Andrew Dowling founded DO. in 2016. It has been a series of highs, lows and a lot in-between ever since, just like his favourite team, the Houston Rockets.
Founding Partner and COO – DO SEA
Matt, also known as Robbo, has 27 years of experience in the world of media investment and marketing, at some of the world’s largest media operations as well as start-ups, with 15 of those spent as either a CTO, COO or CEO. After spending his first 10 professional years in London, Robbo moved to Singapore in 2005 to focus on the APAC region and has since had stints in Kuala Lumpur, Manila, Jakarta and Bangkok, where he currently resides. He has led teams of 3 to 300 with equal levels of comfort and puts his success down to ‘being all about the details’! Outside of work, Robbo can usually be found being made equally frustrated by his ever-worsening golf handicap and the once-great Manchester United football team!
Founding Partner and Managing Director – DO SEA
With two Matt’s at DO SEA, let’s call this one Matt C. Despite his boyish good looks, Matt has been in advertising for over 30 years across the Asia-Pacific and Middle East regions. Over the last 10 years specifically, Matt has been CEO of multi-national agency Y&R in both Vietnam and Indonesia. After a short stint as country manager for on-demand content provider iFlix in Indonesia, Matt joined BBDO Bangkok where he lead and was a transformation agent on the Ford account across half the world (APAC, SEA, ME and SSA) for Omnicom.
The opportunity to be a founding partner and MD of DO SEA integrating both creative and media under the one roof was too tempting and Matt moved across in mid-2023 to lead the team. Matt has won effies, Agency of the Year across multiple regions/markets and worked on too many Lions winners to count. Matt has a golfing trophy cabinet. It’s mostly empty.
Sandra started her media career as a one of the first media buyers in Mediacom Philippines when the agency won the Procter & Gamble account.

Sandra’s love of travel gives her deep insights in understanding how advertising impacts consumers across different cultures. With the combination of all of that and her strategic thinking, Sandra’s campaigns just translate to success.
