Ogilvy Malaysia’s CEO David Mayo resigns

David first took on the role in January 2017, replacing John Deschner.

His client work has also been recognised with awards at Cannes, D&AD, One Show, and London International Awards.

He also successfully launched RedCard, which worked with clients including Motorola. Mayo has worked closely with all aspects within Ogilvy over the years, from creative and commercial, to peer and client communities.
