â€śShenzhen is an extremely exciting market,â€ť said Chris Reitermann, CEO of Ogilvy China and Co-CEO of Ogilvy APAC. â€śWe are seeing a new generation of global tech players emerging in Shenzhen, and we hope that this new office can be a hub facilitating their access to our global Ogilvy and WPP network for their global branding efforts. Following Ogilvyâ€™s Next Chapter strategy to create a connected organisation and client-centric structure, our Shenzhen office will be staffed with some of our best Chinese staff along with global experts experienced in global brand management, and together, they will work seamlessly to make brands matter.â€ť
