Shanghai - Ogilvy & Mather Advertising has hired eight creatives from around the globe to work with its key clients as more companies shift their focus onto China.

Prior to joining, Hunziker founded a creative studio called Pacific Partner Limited in Hong Kong in 2009 and spent nearly a decade in design and creative roles at Vogue and Vogue Homme Intentional in Paris and Lane Crawford in Hong Kong.
Simond Chew moves from Saatchi & Saatchi Singapore where he was creative group head to take the role of creative director at Ogilvy, working with Unilever.
Rocky Hao joins as creative director, overseeing the Philips account. He previously was working at Grey Shanghai where he led the teams working on Sony and Allianz accounts.
