Jerry Smith
Regional president, Asia Pacific
OgilvyOne Worldwide

Jerry has spent his career in the agency business, blurring the ‘line’ for better integration: above-the-line, below-the-line, through-the-line. His philosophy is that there are only two lines that matter: the ‘deadline’ and the ‘bottom line’.

Jerry believes that marketers now need to understand how to optimise total customer contribution. This means looking beyond transactions and lifetime value to include network value, advocacy and collaboration. 

His mission is to replace established marketing practices with a value continuum built on authenticity and remarkable customer experiences. A pioneer in Internet Marketing, he worked and
consulted to many leading organizations and technology companies in the 90s. Jerry joined Ogilvy
Asia Pacific in 2000 and has since held a number of local and regional roles. 

He was responsible for setting up Consulting Services in Asia in 2003, Ogilvy’s production business, RedWorks, in 2005 and more recently the group’s ecommerce practice. He has led OgilvyOne, the world's pre-eminent Customer Engagement agency, with offices in 14 countries across Asia Pacific since 2010. Jerry is a member of the OgilvyOne Worldwide Board and a Fellow of the Institute of Direct Marketing.
