The World: Mumbai - Pandey moves up to Asia-Pacific role within Ogilvy

Piyush Pandey, one of Asia's leading advertising creatives, has been named the vice-chairman of Ogilvy & Mather Asia-Pacific. He will retain his role as the executive chairman and national creative director of Ogilvy India.

Pandey made advertising history in 2004 when he was the first Asian to be president of the Cannes jury. He is also a member of the Ogilvy Worldwide board.

Miles Young, Ogilvy's Asia-Pacific chairman, said: "India is becoming quite fundamental to many of our clients' strategies in this part of the world, and when Piyush speaks for India, he also speaks for Asia."
