Ogilvy Indonesia names Adrian Miller as executive creative director

Ogilvy Indonesia has named former Saatchi & Saatchi and J. Walter Thompson creative Adrian Miller as group executive creative director.

He replaces chief creative officer Din Sumedi, who left the agency in May after four and a half years.

In a statement, Ogilvy said Miller brings with him 15 years of experience, spanning three continents.

He spent two years at Leo Burnett in South Africa before relocating to Malaysia where he had spells as ECD at MullenLowe Group and Saatchi & Saatchi.

Miller moved to Delhi in July 2010 to become CCO at J. Walter Thompson before returning to Johannesberg where he established his own agency +27 Advertising. Immediately prior to joining Ogilvy he led the creative direction at The Riverbed Company.

Ogilvy Indonesia chief executive Anne Ridwan said: “With Adrian on board, we have one of the world’s best creative directors who will work across Ogilvy to ensure we produce world class creative work for our clients.

“His experience of leading integrated campaigns means that he will be a vital addition to the ‘One Ogilvy’ spirit and 360 services that we offer to our clients.”

Ogilvy ASEAN chief creative officer Ajab Samrai said Miller brings “unrivalled experience”.

“He’s worked for three of the world’s top networks across three continents. He’s a business minded creative that delivers big ideas on the biggest brands,” Samrai said.

Guinness, Tiger Beer, Mercedes Benz, Toyota, McDonald’s and HSBC are among Miller’s former clients.
