Who We Are

Ogilvy was founded in 1948 as one office. Today, we operate as a creative network in 132 locations across 83 countries. In the course of this growth, the world has become effectively unrecognizable from what it once was.

Ogilvy has been there every step of the way, shepherding the world’s most successful brands through the uncertainty and helping them adapt and stay relevant for the long-term.

We have never lost sight of our purpose in the world: we exist to make brands matter.

We have succeeded because, despite the massive shifts that have occurred over the years, we have always operated in the way David Ogilvy envisioned. He created a corporate culture that deeply respected and cared about its people and its clients. We honor his legacy by operating with that same commitment.

Our core values remain at the heart of everything we do. They are not a set of rules, but beliefs. They are our DNA.

They inform how we go about our daily lives that help set expectations of the kind of work we create, and the kind of people we hire.

We know that as long as we live our values, we will do great work. Our people will learn and grow, explore their interests and become the best versions of their personal and professional selves.

Our values have gotten us far, and they will take us ever further into the future. We live this as one force, indivisible.

We are: Pervasively Creative, Adaptively Connected, Relentlessly Curious, Divinely Discontented, Eternal Craftspeople.

We are Ogilvy.
