DDB Mudra’s Sonal Dabral returns to Ogilvy India as CCO and vice chairman

Ogilvy India has appointed Sonal Dabral as group chief creative officer and vice chairman following his departure from DDB Mudra last month.

Dabral had previously worked for Ogilvy India between 1991 and 1999. He subsequently took over as the creative head of Ogilvy Malaysia and then joined the agency’s Singapore base as executive creative director in 2004.

He left Singapore in 2007 to join Bates in India and then joined DDB Mudra as chairman and CCO in 2012.

Ogilvy India executive chairman and creative director Piyush Pandey said: “Sonal was my first partner in building the creative reputation of Ogilvy India as it stands today. I am sure we will have a great partnership again to take Ogilvy to even greater heights.”

He added: “As my partner in the 90s, he hired more creative talent than I have done in my life. He not only hired them, but inspired them and gave them wings to fly on their own.”
