Ogilvy & Mather Malaysia has strengthened its creative team with the appointment of Jingwei Wong as creative group head. Wong will report to Gavin Simpson, chief creative officer at Ogilvy & Mather Malaysia.

Wong will principally lead Ogilvy’s signature Coca-Cola output while there will be myriad other cross brand and function opportunities in the agency.

David Mayo, CEO of Ogilvy Malaysia said, “We are extremely pleased to have Wong join our new team in KL. He brings a thoroughly modern mix of creative skills to our agency as part of our next chapter at Ogilvy Malaysia and he will work cross-functionally with our Digital and Social and Content teams from his base at the centre of our new agency model.”
