Advertising legend S R Mani Ayer passes away

Advertising legend S R Mani Ayer (1935-2010), who was also the former Managing Director & CEO of Ogilvy & Mather India, passed away earlier today. It is understood that Ayer was ailing for the past few days. He is survived by his wife, daughter and a son.

Born on September 5, 1935, Ayer had worked for over 45 years. The advertising legend was instrumental in bringing talents like Piyush Pandey to the fore. He was with Ogilvy for 36 years, joining the agency way back in 1958. He was Managing Director and CEO when he left the agency in 1994.

It may be recalled that Ayer had complied a tribute for Suresh Mullick. The tribute comprised anecdotes that recounted the fondest memories of Mullick during their time together.
