‘It’s good to be home again’: Andrew Low returns to Ogilvy after stint at Leo Burnett Malaysia

The former executive creative director of Leo Burnett Malaysia is leaving to join Ogilvy Beijing.

Andrew Low previously spent eight years at Ogilvy Malaysia, before leaving to join the Publicis Groupe-owned rival agency in 2015.

Over his 18-year advertising career, Low has worked with global brands such as Nestle, Coca-Cola, Philips, Pizza Hut, and Kimberley Clark.

His appointment as Leo Burnett ECD coincided with the agency’s launch of a creative council in a bid to “hit the refresh button” on their creative output. 

Low will hold the ECD role at Ogilvy jointly with the Beijing office’s current ECD, Kin Chong.

The move follows the appointment of Chee Guan Yue, who became Ogilvy China’s group ECD in April.

Low said: “China is definitely the most exciting advertising market in Asia, with an ever-changing landscape and intensively competitive brands and ideas.

“I am very much looking forward to this new Ogilvy journey. It feels good to be home again.”

Ogilvy’s chief creative officer Graham Fink added: “Andrew is not only one of the rare breed of creatives who easily navigate the digital world, but he also has a proven track record of big brand ideas. Moving to an integrated agency structure, we need senior creative leadership that can break down silos and engage people across expertise while providing the best integrated solutions.”
