Ogilvy ECD Talha B Mohsin launches 'Better Late Than Never Films'

He leaves agency life after 22 years to go after the director's chair.

Ogilvy executive director Talha B Mohsin is leaving the advertising industry after 22 years to pursue his directorial ambitions with Better Late Than Never Films where he's the partner and director.

“I’m quitting advertising after 22 gruelling but fully worth-it years,” he writes on LinkedIn.

He waves goodbye to the industry for one simple reason: “Well, it’s to embrace the chaos of the director’s chair.”

In his long career, Mohsin has worked for agencies like Contract, DDB, McCann Worldgroup, Leo Burnett, and Digitas. He was two months short of spending a decade at Ogilvy.

“My only hope is that my work going forward brings just as big a smile as the beautiful years gone by. And with that, I bid my farewell to my cherished agency life. But not to all you lovely agency people. (Chalo ab kaam do!)”
