Berndt will also assume control of the agency's direct marketing arm, OgilvyOne, as well as its PR and healthcare divisions.

Before joining O&M in 1998, Berndt was the worldwide account director on Apple at TBWA\Chiat\Day.

The co-creative directors, David Apicella and Chris Wall, will now oversee the agency's creative department.
