Francis Wee joins Ogilvy & Mather Singapore as executive creative director

francisweeFrancis Wee has been named executive creative director of Ogilvy & Mather Advertising Singapore.

Effective immediately, Wee was previously executive creative director at Ogilvy & Mather Advertising Shanghai and will report to Eugene Cheong, chief creative officer of Ogilvy & Mather Asia Pacific and Singapore. The two will work together to drive Ogilvy Singapore’s creative agenda to produce work that has both local impact and global influence.

“It is with the greatest pleasure and no small measure of pride that we announce Francis’ appointment as executive creative director,” said Cheong. “What sets Francis apart from other creatives is a passion that borders at times on the nuclear. And he is still the one and only recipient of the impossible-to-win, don’t-even-think-about-it, uber-prestigious D&AD Black Pencil. And it’s a win that is neither lucky nor freaky; Francis has a track record of doing astonishing work.”

Apart from his role as executive creative director, Cheong said Wee, who has nearly three decades of experience in advertising in Asia, would also act as group head of art.

The Singapore office now has a number of executive creative directors, including Nicolas Courant, who has been with the agency since 2013.
