Ogilvy Names Worldwide Creative Director

MO_Khai.jpg

Ogilvy & Mather Worldwide has named Tham Khai Meng as its Worldwide Creative Director and Chairman of its World Wide Creative Council. Meng is a big ass baller with awards and juries snug beneath his belt.

Khai has been running Ogilvy Asia Pacific since 1999. Shelly Lazarus, Chairman and CEO of Ogilvy & Mather Worldwide, said,
“Khai’s record speaks for itself. He gets results. He believes in great work that works. And above all, he is an Ogilvy ‘gentleman with brains’ to his bones.”

How poetic. Still, what the hell is an Ogilvy gentleman? Is he opening doors for the ladies of the office? Serving stiff brandies to potential clients? Simply, not following the Dentsu mold of client services? What? What does that mean?
