Andrew Low has resigned from Leo Burnett Malaysia and is joining Ogilvy Beijing as Executive Creative Director.
This is another heavy-weight appointment to bolster its creative leadership, after the agency added veteran creative Chee Guan Yue to its Shanghai office as Group ECD in April this year. Low (pictured) will be working alongside fellow ECD Kin Chong to oversee the agency’s integrated creative department in Beijing.
Commenting on the new addition, Chief Creative Officer Graham Fink said: “Andrew is not only one of the rare breed of creatives who easily navigate the digital world, but he also has a proven track record of big brand ideas. Moving to an integrated agency structure, we need senior creative leadership that can break down silos and engage people across expertise while providing the best integrated solutions. Andrew is exactly that and he knows us well thanks to his 8 years of experience in Ogilvy Malaysia. I’m pleased that he is moving to Beijing to join us.”
Low is an 18-year advertising veteran passionate about adopting the latest technologies for integrated work and he has a track record of bringing people together for growth. Directly before his current ECD role at Leo Burnett, Low spent 8 years with Ogilvy Malaysia where he served global clients including Nestle, Coca-Cola, Philips, Pizza Hut, and Kimberley Clark. He has also worked in Singapore and has earned a long list of awards from Cannes, One Show, Adfest, LIA, IPA Effectiveness, AMEs, Malaysia Effie, WARC, and Kancils.
Low said: “China is definitely the most exciting advertising market in Asia, with an ever-changing landscape and intensively competitive brands and ideas. Among all the exciting aspects of Ogilvy, what attracts me most is the potential for creatives to bring cutting-edge technology together with great ideas while crafting influential communications that matter to millions of consumers. I am very much looking forward to this new Ogilvy journey. It feels good to be home again.”
“I’m very excited to have Andrew join us, teaming up with Kin Chong and me to take our creative product in Beijing to the next level. Andrew has a great background and a proven track record on big clients,” said Selina Teng, President of Ogilvy Beijing.
