NEW YORK, NY, September 4, 2014—Ogilvy & Mather Worldwide Chief Creative Officer Tham Khai Meng announced today the appointment of César Agost Carreño, Vice President of Creative at Ogilvy & Mather Mexico, to O&M’s Worldwide Creative Council.
Tham, the Chairman of O&M’s Worldwide Creative Council, noted, “You don’t get to the Council simply by being good. You have to be great and consistently so. It takes a special person to fit in and deliver, to keep the flame burning and the pipes of Pervasive Creativity pumping in a world of relentless competition. César is just such a person.”
Carreño, who joined O&M in 2001, has been an “integral part of our creative renaissance,” Tham said. Prior to his Mexico post, Carreño was with O&M Chile for ten years where he was CEO and also served as head of Creative Services. Prior to that he was with O&M Buenos Aires.
“It’s a huge pleasure and a real honor to join this august group working with Khai. This band of our top creative leaders is the creative conscience of the agency. It has one single purpose: to continue toraise the creative bar for all the brands we work for. I can’t wait!” Carreño said.
Earlier this year, Tham led O&M to victory at the Cannes International Festival of Creativity where the agency won Network of the Year for the third consecutive year.
Over the course of his career, Carreño won a Grand Prix at Cannes—the first ever awarded for Chile—and two Grand Prix at El Ojo de Iberoamerica. His awards also include 22 Cannes Lions and top honors from the Clios, the One Show, D&AD, the EFFIEs and the London International Advertising Awards, among others.
