O&M Beijing appoints new ECD

Ogilvy & Mather Advertising Beijing has appointed Juggi Ramakrishnan as executive creative director – 10 months after Bill Chan left the role in May 2012.

In the new role, Ramakrishnan will be the creative head for the Chinese market as well as a role model for inspiring local creative talent.

Since 2010, Ramakrishnan has been acting as deputy regional ECD at Ogilvy & Mather Advertising Asia Pacific, garnering business wins for clients like Royal Philips, ICC T20 World Cup and Schwepps.

Prior to joining the agency, he was the ECD of BBDO Proximity Singapore for three years and at Saatchi & Saatchi Singapore for more than a decade.

"Juggi is a very passionate man with exceptional creative talent - having won an incredible 16 Lions at Cannes,” said Graham Fink, Ogilvy & Mather China chief creative officer.

“I believe his addition will generate bigger, more integrated ideas and help ignite a new creative era at O&M Beijing."
