We continue to position commerce, agile content and data-driven marketing at the center of our offering, backed with the talent and creative firepower that produces results for our clients.” 

“Debdan will ensure we deliver brand impact and effectiveness through our integrated strategy enablement team. Not only to ensure we can deliver on the business and brand needs of existing and new clients, but also to broaden our strategy purview to include aspects of experience which would include digital marketing, commerce, personalization and more”, said Jason Hill, Chief Strategy Officer (Singapore). “To do this, Debdan will be working with our extended strategy team in Singapore and the rest of the Strategy Community in our network.”

Debdan has 21 years of work experience on both the agency and client side. He joins Ogilvy from Entropia and prior to that, spent a large part of his career at Leo Burnett. He worked on brands such as Petronas, Tenaga Nasional, AIA, Dutch Lady, Samsung, YES! Mobile and more.
