Sonal Dabral, Ogilvy's chief creative officer for South and Southeast Asia and vice chairman for India, has decided to move on from the agency.
His next move is reportedly in the content space.
Dabral re-joined Ogilvy for a second stint in 2017 and was given an expanded APAC role in January last year after the departure of Eugene Cheong.
“Sonal was one of my key partners in the creative renaissance at Ogilvy India in the early 1990s," Piyush Pandey, Ogilvy's worldwide CCO and executive chairman for India, said in a statement issued by the agency. "He later moved on to do successful stints as the creative head of Ogilvy Malaysia and Singapore. Sonal came back to India as chairman of Bates India and, after exploring DDB Mudra for a few years, joined Ogilvy again. I wish him well and am certain he will make the content world shine.”
