Graham Fink joins Ogilvy Asia Pacific Executive Committee

HONG KONG, March 16, 2012 – After just seven months with Ogilvy & Mather, Graham Fink, Chief Creative Officer for China, has been invited to join the Ogilvy Asia Pacific Executive Committee.

Fink joins Piyush Pandey, Executive Chairman and Creative Director, India and South Asia, and Eugene Cheong, Chief Creative Officer, Ogilvy Asia Pacific, as the creative leaders on the Exco and will ensure that Ogilvy’s largest and fastest growing market, China, is well represented.

“Pervasive creativity is our number one priority as it drives our business success. To achieve this we need the creative voice to be dominant at the highest level of the company which is why I am delighted to announce that Graham has joined the Ogilvy Asia Pacific Exco,” said Paul Heath, CEO, Ogilvy & Mather Asia Pacific.

“Graham is the sort of creature David Ogilvy instructed us to hire: a giant. He has been with us for just seven months and, already, he has made a significant difference. We want to see creativity permeate the foundation and atmosphere of the agency. For that to happen, I can ask for no better partner than Graham on the Exco,” said Eugene Cheong, Chief Creative Officer, Ogilvy & Mather Asia Pacific

Since arriving in May 2011, Fink has already made a major contribution to Ogilvy. He has made a series of significant new hires, implemented creative training for all of China as well as driving the development of world-class creative work for existing clients and new business pitches.
