O&M has been beefing up its top rung with new Presidents for Mumbai, and now in Delhi and Bangalore. The Ogilvy India Board has named Sudhir Sahni as President for O&M Delhi. His elevation comes close on the heels of Simmi Sabhaney being elevated as President of O&M Bangalore and Hephzibah Pathak as President of O&M Mumbai.

Meanwhile, Simmi Sabhaney has been elevated as President for O&M Bangalore. Sabhaney has been with Ogilvy for almost 18 years and worked on Unilever’s F&B brands, Titan, Madhura Garments, ITC Foods, Cadbury’s, WorldSpace, Canara Bank, Skol Breweries, Yahoo, Prestige and Rohan Builders, among others.

Her journey in O&M has been from Account Executive to President. While at Ogilvy, she has also spent four years at Ogilvy Mumbai working on Unilever’s, Cadbury’s and a USAID-funded programme, ‘Goli ke Hamjoli’.

Speaking about her new role, Sabhaney said, “It feels wonderful to make the journey from Account Executive to President within the same organisation. The Ogilvy culture is very stimulating as a result in my 18 years here, I have always felt passionate about the work that we create. I look forward to driving this passion and zeal among the youngsters in my new role.”
