OgilvyOne Worldwide names Namrata Keswani as VP and Head, Mumbai

OgilvyOne Worldwide, Mumbai has appointed Namrata Keswani as Vice-President and Head of Office.

This is a home-coming of sorts for Keswani, who began her journey with Ogilvy & Mather Mumbai, way back in 2003 where she proceeded to handle some of the agency’s most prestigious businesses. Among them were Asian Paints, Mattel, Unilever, Google, Cadbury, Taj Hotels and TBZ. She also spent a year and a half at Ogilvy Singapore where she managed the GlaxoSmithKline, American Express and Kimberly Clark businesses.

She worked as a Fashion Stylist at NBC in 2005 and more recently, at Condé Nast India where she led the Condé Nast factory – a content vertical for the publishing group. 

Welcoming Keswani to her new role, Vikram Menon, President, OgilvyOne Worldwide, India said, “OgilvyOne has been India’s No. 1 Digital Agency for many years. Our flagship Mumbai office was recently ranked among the World’s 10 Best Digital Agencies. And to have Namrata now at the helm is truly exciting. Her varied experience across markets, brands and new media will be ideal, as OgilvyOne, Mumbai looks to set new benchmarks across the board.”

Keswani commented, “OgilvyOne Mumbai has grown and transformed rapidly over the last few years into a leading digital agency. It’s a fantastic opportunity to be at its helm and chart its next chapter of growth. I hope to nurture a nimble, learning agency culture and ensure our clients see us as their partner of choice in this exciting, challenging environment where the digital landscape and consumer are evolving so dramatically.”
