New Delhi: London International Awards (LIA), has honoured Piyush Pandey with its 2024 LIA Legend Award. Pandey is the second creative giant to be bestowed this award by LIA. He was appointed the Executive Chairman of Ogilvy India in 2004. He also went onto serve as Global Chief Creative Officer for two and a half years. In January 2024, he stepped into an advisory role. 

Pandey, former Global Chief Creative Officer at Ogilvy will be accepting the Created for Creatives LIA Legend Award onsite, in Las Vegas on October 1, 2024. Also in attendance will be the LIA Jurors, onsite Creative LIAisons attendees and speakers and global press.

Barbara Levy, President of LIA, elaborated, “We look for someone who has reshaped the industry for the better. More than that, it must be someone who not only has a wealth of knowledge and experience, but generously shares it with emerging talent. Piyush has shaped Indian advertising, as well as, gifted his knowledge to the global advertising world. Like all advertising legends, it is his work that tells the best story. Piyush epitomizes all the qualities David Ogilvy said great leaders should possess – bravery, idealism, curiosity, playfulness, candour, intuition, free-spiritedness and persistence.” 

Terry Savage, LIA Chairman, further stated, “In giving this award to Piyush, we recognize someone who has openly given back to others in an extraordinary way. Over and above that, Piyush has been a role model, inspiration and creative champion to so many people, people who follow his achievements and because of this have gone on their own creative journey.” 

In accepting the honor, Pandey said, “I am truly delighted and humbled to be the recipient of this award. I believe that my success is based on a lot of team members. Like cricket, even the best player cannot win alone. I have succeeded to whatever extent because of an amazing team; each a rock-star and they make me look good. It has been my great joy and pleasure to be part of LIA and their Creative LIAisons Program, as I believe the learnings of a lifetime should be shared with the next generation. Advertising is a team effort. I am delighted that LIA has considered me and decided to confer the Legend award to me. Wishing my parents were alive to read this news. Thank you, LIA.”
