Graham Kelly has returned to Ogilvy as Executive Creative Director, India, for OgilvyOne Worldwide. In his earlier stint with Ogilvy, Kelly had worked in Ogilvy Direct, Ogilvy Advertising and had played a pivotal role in the Ogilvy network as Regional ECD for Ogilvy Interactive across Asia.
Commenting on the development, Kunal Jeswani, Country Head, OgilvyOne India, said, “We love great talent. And Graham Kelly is just that – a great talent who will have a smashing impact on OgilvyOne’s digital creative offering in India.”
Abhijit Avasthi, National Creative Director, Ogilvy & Mather India, added here, “We are thrilled to have Graham as our partner. Graham is perhaps Asia-Pacific’s foremost exponent in the digital/ integrated space. The width of his experience in this space across categories is unmatched. He has spent a lot of time at Ogilvy earlier as well and understands our way of building brands. Since the 90s, Ogilvy has defined and redefined television advertising in India. With Graham in our team, we hope to make that kind of impact in the digital/ integrated space.”
