Ogilvy & Mather has promoted Anand Badami to the role of Group Managing Director, Ogilvy & Mather Malaysia, in addition to his current responsibilities as Regional Business Development Director for Nestle. Previously based in Singapore, Badami will move to Malaysia and take over the position from Andre Nair later this month. Prior to moving to Singapore, Badami was Country Head, Ogilvy & Mather Indonesia.

Meanwhile, Nair will leave the agency after fulfilling his two-year contract at the end of September to return to his consultancy role.

Commenting on the development, John Goodman, Regional Director, Ogilvy & Mather ASEAN and President, Ogilvy Action, Asia Pacific, said, “We’re delighted Anand has accepted this new challenge and we’re grateful to Andre for his commitment to strengthening the agency during his two-year tenure. Malaysia is key to our South-East Asia growth strategy and an agency we’ll continue to invest in.”

A long time Ogilvy stalwart, Badami first joined Ogilvy in India, where he played an instrumental role in launching Dove in-market. During his 15-year career with the network, he has worked across multiple Asian markets on clients portfolios that include: Unilever’s Dove and Ponds, Nestlé’s Milo and UPS. Badami will oversee the growth and development of the Malaysian office as well as partner with the agency’s key clients which include: Maxis, Nestle, MAS, Shell, IBM, Guinness, BAT, Coke, Goodyear and Pizza Hut.
