World: Manila - Coscolluela to head O&M's Philippines office

Ogilvy & Mather has named Tina Coscolluela as the group managing director of its Philippines office.

Coscolluela is the first Filipino and the first woman to run the operation.

She has been at O&M for 12 years, most recently as a management partner in Thailand, handling the Unilever and Nestle accounts.

Coscolluela has a shortlist of three names for the vacant executive creative director position at the agency and hopes to name the successful candidate in February. She succeeds Bob Hekkelman, whose next position within O&M has yet to be decided.
