Sonal Dabral, Chief Creative Officer South & South East Asia and Vice Chairman Ogilvy India, has decided to move on. He had joined Ogilvy India as Group Chief Creative Officer and Vice Chairman in July 2017.
According to a press statement by Ogilvy, Dabral wants to explore options in content and content creation, something he has always had a keen interest in. "With so much happening now in this space, Sonal felt the time was right to follow his passion and explore storytelling not confined to advertising. Ogilvy thanks Sonal for his many years of contribution to our offices across India and Asia, and wish him all the best on his next adventure," the agency said.
“Sonal was one of my key partners in the creative renaissance at Ogilvy India in the early 1990s. He later moved on to do successful stints as the creative head of Ogilvy Malaysia and Singapore. Sonal came back to India as Chairman of Bates India and, after exploring DDB Mudra for a few years, joined Ogilvy again. I wish him well and am certain he will make the content world shine,” said Piyush Pandey, Chief Creative Officer Worldwide & Executive Chairman India, Ogilvy.
