Ogilvy India has announced the appointment of Sonal Dabral as Group Chief Creative Officer and Vice Chairman, Ogilvy India.

Piyush Pandey, Executive Chairman and Creative Director, Ogilvy South Asia shared, “I am delighted to welcome back Sonal Dabral to Ogilvy India as Group Chief Creative Officer and Vice Chairman. This is a first-time designation at Ogilvy & Mather in keeping with Sonal’s stature. Sonal was my first partner in building the creative reputation of Ogilvy India as it stands today. I am sure we will have a great partnership again to take Ogilvy to even greater heights.

“Sonal is a man of great creative reputation around the world, who worked at Ogilvy India from 1991 to 1999. He then took over as the Creative Head of Ogilvy Malaysia and within three years made it the No. 1 Creative Agency in that country. Thereafter he took on the reins of creativity in Ogilvy Singapore as its leader and raised the flag even higher, after which Ogilvy India wooed him back to India as the Chairman India and Regional Creative Director for Bates Asia-Pacific. He then took on the responsibility at DDB Mudra as Chairman and Chief Creative Officer.”

This appointment is welcomed and celebrated by John Seifert, Chairman & CEO of Ogilvy Worldwide, Tham Khai Meng, Worldwide Chief Creative Officer and Co-Chairman of Ogilvy Worldwide, Kent Wertime, Co-Chief Executive Officer of Ogilvy Asia-Pacific and Eugene Cheong, Chief Creative Officer of Ogilvy Asia-Pacific. The Ogilvy leadership looks forward to Sonal injecting additional energy to the creative powerhouse for which Ogilvy India is well known around the world.

“We welcome Sonal to Ogilvy, as we start a new chapter of great Indian creativity. This is what will make our clients’ businesses stronger and Ogilvy India stronger,” Piyush concluded.
