With 450 offices across 120 countries, the Ogilvy Group network spans North America, Central America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and the Asia-Pacific region. This network offers services to many of the companies listed in the Fortune Global 500 prepared by U.S. Fortune magazine as well as to locally based companies in many countries.
Ogilvy is a part of WPP, the world’s largest communication services network. Organizations belonging to the Ogilvy Group include the following:
Ogilvy Asia Pacific has won the Agency of the Year award from advertising magazine Media, which is owned by British Haymarket Publishing, for three consecutive years, since 2006.
The reasons Media magazine cites for naming Ogilvy for these awards, include the number of advertising awards that Ogilvy offices have won in the growing markets in Asia, the support Ogilvy provides its clients across the whole 360-degree range of advertising marketing, Ogilvy’s enthusiasm for employee education (Ogilvy is often described as “the university of advertising.”), and for Ogilvy’s record of accomplishments in transforming local Asian brands into global brands.
In addition to amazing creative work, Ogilvy has won a number of international advertising effectiveness awards. In fact, in 2008, the network won 57 Asia Marketing Effectiveness Awards.Strength of the Network in Asia
The Ogilvy Group has focused on the Asia-Pacific region since its early days, having opened its first Asian office in India in the 1920s. Currently, the Group has offices in 19 countries across the region, and, among them, 18 are among the three top-selling advertising agencies in their home markets.
In the Asia-Pacific region, Ogilvy has been a pioneer on a number of occasions. In China, we established a joint company with a domestic organization and became the first foreign advertising agency in the market. We were one of the first to set up operations in Vietnam and have enjoyed great success in areas where only a few foreign brands have established a presence.
Ogilvy will continue to make optimal use of its long experience in communication activities, its unique methodology, its broad and powerful network, and its rich human resources to give strong support to Japanese companies operating in Asia that are looking to expand their activities.
