Dugan & O’Sullivan and McCormack partner together

Dugan & O’Sullivan are thrilled to be working with one of Victoria’s leading full-service building companies. McCormack specialises in the design, construction, fit-out and refurbishment of corporate offices and commercial environments as well as offering project management, maintenance, facility services, heritage projects and painting services.  

When asked about their work with McCormack, Darcy O’Sullivan, Managing Partner at Dugan & O’Sullivan, reflects “from the moment we met the leadership team, the potential for a thriving partnership between ourselves and McCormack was obvious.”

McCormack is a long-standing, very successful and well-respected company with a considerable presence across Victoria and in turn Melbourne. Dugan & O’Sullivan are excited to grasp the opportunity to position McCormack in the market with even more clarity and relevance than they have achieved so far. Darcy feels “the McCormack team are doing so many things right. They’re already doing the hard yards. We simply identified a greater opportunity for their brand. Allowing us to do some of the heavy lifting for them will free them up to continue to work in and grow their business.”

Watch this space for their upcoming rebrand, a brand set to fly in 2022 and beyond.

The Chamberlain Foundation

When Ranj Samrai engaged Dugan & O’Sullivan to work on growing awareness of the Chamberlain Foundation, we were thrilled at the opportunity to raise the profile of this already established and respected not-for-profit.  

The brainchild of brothers Brian, Peter and Ray Chamberlain, the foundation is focused on raising awareness about the importance of mental wellness; particularly critical to first response and emergency services workers. 

A worthy brand, with a loyal following, aligning closely with Dugan & O’Sullivan’s values of working towards ‘something bigger,’ the challenge to promote the Chamberlain Foundation’s 2021 Luncheon was an ideal project for our team to embrace. With the core objective to grow the uptake and acceptance of the luncheon’s invites from previous years – Dugan O’Sullivan set out to ‘push the boundaries beyond the expected.’

Dugan O’Sullivan expanded the brief of creating an engaging campaign for this annual event, taking a long-term view of the foundation’s prevention, support and advocacy work.  We set out to create greater levels of sustainable engagement that would inspire and spur on a great number of people to support and promote the foundation amongst their personal social networks. 

Samrai advocates that Dugan & O’Sullivan excelled by ‘picking out some of our best stories and showcasing them in a way that resonated with the social media audience the posts targeted.’ As a result of this collaboration numbers for the event, which have grown steadily each year since its debut, shot up dramatically. The far-reaching impact of this work is yet to be measured and as the Chamberlain Foundation evolves and expands its reach, time will be the teller.

Tahn Miller at the Chamberlain Foundation Lunch.

We’re excited to welcome Business Development Manager, Tahn Miller, to Dugan & O’Sullivan. In her role, Tahn will work to define strategic business goals, liaise with key partners and stakeholders, and identify new business opportunities across several intersecting disciplines.

“I’ve been recommending Dugan & O’Sullivan for many years – the simple fact is that they are so good at what they do. When I was invited to formalise our relationship it was a no brainer for me. They’re thinkers first, creatives second and putting them in front of potential new clients is an obvious decision because I know the Dugan & O’Sullivan team will have a positive impact on whoever is wise enough to say yes to them.” says Tahn.

With her long-standing relationships and exceptional track record, Tahn is a critical addition to the growing agency. By bringing on specialist talent like Tahn, the team continues to expand its core capabilities for its ever-growing roster of clientele.

“I’ve known Tahn for quite a few years now and I am excited to officially welcome her to the team at Dugan & O’Sullivan. Her unique skill set and vibrant personality will be a major contributor to our continued growth,” says Darcy O’Sullivan, Managing Partner.

D&O moving into the next decade

At the beginning of 2020 we updated our name from Dugan O’Sullivan to D&O, a small change but one that signifies big moves. Our agency has come a long way since we first started as two young guys in their mid-twenties with big ideas and a whole lot of heart and we know there are still many amazing things to come. Since our inception, our growth and evolution as a brand has been consistent and along the way we’ve learned some powerful lessons. It’s been a challenging yet rewarding journey, one we wouldn’t change for the world.

We’ve produced more project marketing campaigns than we can count and have worked closely with our clients to develop and manage their brands and communications long-term. We’ve formed a rock-solid understanding of what is missing from the market and what our clients, and prospective clients alike, truly need, not necessarily want. Brands don’t just manage themselves. They need constant, unbiased attention at all times. Every brand should expect nothing less than truly holistic and integrated brand consultation and at D&O we deliver this each and every day.

We are D&O.
