Sonal Dabral to join Ogilvy as group CCO and vice chairman
Ogilvy India has announced the appointment of Sonal Dabral as group CCO and vice chairman. Dabral had announced his exit from DDB Mudra where he was chairman and CCO a couple of weeks ago. He will be with the agency until September 2017 to ensure a 'smooth transition'.
 
Dabral had previously worked with Ogilvy India between 1991 and 1999.  He then took over as the creative head at Ogilvy Malaysia. Post that, he had a stint with Ogilvy Singapore. He then returned to India as the chairman and regional creative director for Bates Asia-Pacific. 
 
Piyush Pandey, executive chairman and creative director, Ogilvy South Asia, said, "I am delighted to welcome back Sonal Dabral to Ogilvy India as group chief creative officer and vice chairman. This is a first-time designation at Ogilvy & Mather in keeping with Sonal’s stature. Sonal was my first partner in building the creative reputation of Ogilvy India as it stands today. I am sure we will have a great partnership again to take Ogilvy to even greater heights."
 
Pandey effusively added, "As my partner in the 90s, he hired more creative talent than I have done in my life.  He not only hired them, but inspired them and gave them wings to fly on their own... There is so much to Sonal’s achievements, that if I write them all, his joining us will get delayed. We welcome Sonal to Ogilvy, as we start a new chapter of great Indian creativity."
