Fink will be based in Shanghai.

Speaking of his appointment, he said, “M&C Saatchi is a fantastic agency and I have really enjoyed my time there. The people are dizzyingly smart and enabled me to build a great creative department. It is now time for my next big challenge – and what could be bigger than Ogilvy & Mather China?"

One of the most recognised faces in British advertising, Fink is top of the 2010 world creative rankings in The Gunn Report for print. He is famous for his work on Land Rover, Hamlet and British Airways, and more recently won a D&AD Pencil and gold and bronze Lions at Cannes for his work  on Dixons.

"Graham will take us to the next lap. His elevation to the position of CCO of Ogilvy & Mather China is inevitable in a way, since his success in the UK has become legendary, and is unmatched by anyone else that I know," said Ogilvy & Mather Worldwide chief creative officer Tham Khai Meng. 

He goes on to describe Fink as a "massively talented art-director" and "probably the most passionate, hardest-working and totally focused adman in this business".

Previous agencies on Fink's resume include Collett Dickinson Pearce, WCRS, Saatchi & Saatchi and GGT. He joined M&C Saatchi as creative director in 2005.
