She will now oversee all aspects of business performance, people management, and client relationships at Ogilvy Thailand, as well as implement the strategic direction of the agency.

“The works under her supervision did not only shape people’s affections, but also their thoughts and behaviors, and went on to create ripple effects that transformed our society for the better. She is a true female icon who is loved and respected not just within the Ogilvy network, but by the wider communication community. I believe that, with her new, well-deserved role, Jiravara will continue to empower her people and bring our company forward with her unmatched business and emotional intelligence.”
