Derek Green Joins Ogilvy Group Sydney as ECD

ogilvy-logo130Derek Green is returning to Australia to join Ogilvy Group Sydney after almost ten years abroad to fill the role of executive creative director. Green will partly fill the void left by the departure of CCO Steve Back in July. He will lead Ogilvy Group Sydney’s team of 57 creatives beginning in December.

Green arrives from Cramer Krasselt in Chicago, where he has worked since 2012, currently serving as SVP, executive creative director. He has worked with clients including Heineken, P&G, Diageo, Novartis, Canon and Subaru, and has been the recipient of Gold and Silver Cannes Lions.

“We were able to persuade him that after nearly a decade earning international experience, it was time to come home,” David Fox, CEO Ogilvy Group Australia, told Campaign Brief. “We’ve found an international creative director who is hungry to take on the opportunities Ogilvy has to offer; the fact he has a local pedigree and market knowledge is an added bonus.”

“This is a huge opportunity to now bring everything I’ve learned in several decades of advertising to a great agency, with an iconic client list, and a lead a team of very clever and motivated individuals,” Green added.
