A closer look at the people and teams who won top honours in the 2017 Agency Network of the Year Awards

Asia-Pacific Agency Head of the Year (Creative) | Kent Wertime & Chris Reitermann | Ogilvy Asia: Longtime Ogilvy APAC head Paul Heath left some large shoes behind when he departed for a global role in 2016. At first, industry wags wondered why it would take four feet to fill those shoes, but the co-CEO approach seems to be working for Ogilvy & Mather. The agency’s ongoing transformation from a collection of distinctly branded disciplines to a single enterprise that marshals its resources on behalf of client needs seems to be working. As just one measure. Ogilvy finished atop R3’s New Business League for last year (nearly doubling the dollar-value of the second-place agency) and has led it for most of this year as well. As another, APAC’s contribution to Ogilvy’s global revenue is growing by a healthy percentage. In the last year, Wertime and Reitermann have been focussed on talent: clarifying and fulfilling needs; simplifying HR processes; and unifying the workforce with training.
