He is a rare talent and one of Asia's most respected creatives; I'm thrilled he's joined our team. Despite the downturn, we remain committed to investing in top talent for the sake of our clients and their businesses. Juggi's remit is to elevate the standard of our overall creative output, with a special emphasis on Southeast Asia."
Ramakrishnan is excited about his new assignment and says, "Their deep knowledge, talent and superiority when it comes to integration is rare - there is no other network like Ogilvy."
