Ogilvy Sydney promotes Jenny Mak to CD role

Derek_GREEN-and_Jenny_MAK.jpgAward-winning creative Jenny Mak has been promoted to the role of Creative Director, Ogilvy Sydney working alongside the agency's 40-strong creative team.

Mak joined Ogilvy five years ago initially as senior copywriter and then Associate CD.

ECD Derek Green (pictured with Mak) said Mak's promotion was a no-brainer: "She's an absolute pleasure to work with, she's made a major impact on all of our clients' brands with a great balance of hard-working campaigns and cutting edge work," he said.

At Ogilvy, Mak has created work for some of the world's most famous brands including Coca-Cola, Huggies, and KFC to name a few. Her work has also been awarded both locally and internationally at Cannes, Effies, New York Festivals, Spikes, One Show and AWARD.
Says Mak: "I couldn't be more excited to help drive the creative vision for the office and to help bring brilliant ideas to life. Being part of the Ogilvy family means being part of a world-class team and I'm looking forward to contributing to the success of the network."

Good move Ogilvy. Talent and hard work get's you the CD title. Drinking beers with the right people during sneaky lunches gets you invited to parties and the odd high five.

My hairdresser calls himself a CD these days so you're wrong, talent and hard work don't "get's" you shit.

It's just a title, and she's probably been doing the role for years.

Well done on the recognition.
