Jingwei finds his way to O&M as Creative Group Head


Ogilvy & Mather Malaysia has strengthened its creative team with the appointment of Jingwei Wong (picture) as Creative Group Head, and he will report to Chief Creative Officer Gavin Simpson.

He will lead Ogilvy’s signature Coca-Cola output while there will be myriad other cross brand and function opportunities in the agency.

Having started his advertising career in JWT Kuala Lumpur as a junior copywriter, he has since expanded his abilities and experience by working on diverse accounts including HSBC, Kit Kat, Shell, Twisties, Wonda Coffee, Friso, OCBC, Maxis, Lazada and more. He has also won various awards – both locally and regionally – from shows such as Kancils, Spikes and Adfest.

He received a Gold Kancil and a Silver for Lazada’s 2016 brand film Blastoff, and comes from his immediate previous role as Senior Writer at Leo Burnett Kuala Lumpur.

CEO of Ogilvy Malaysia, David Mayo, said, “Jingwei brings a thoroughly modern mix of creative skills to our agency as part of our next chapter at Ogilvy Malaysia and he will work cross-functionally with our Digital, Social and Content teams from his base at the centre of our new agency model.”
