“A brand is the intangible sum of a product’s attributes  It’s name, packaging and price, its history, reputation and the way it’s advertised. ”

About Ogilvy & Mather South Africa

In 1948, David Ogilvy founded the agency that would become Ogilvy & Mather. Starting with no clients and a staff of two, he built his company into one of the eight largest advertising networks in the world with more than 500 offices and 20,000 staff across 169 cities.

Ogilvy & Mather South Africa’s origins lie with a small hot shop in Cape Town, founded by Bob Rightford, Brian Searle-Tripp and 澳门足球博彩_2016奥运会外围赌球最新官方网站【赔率最高】 Roger Makin in 1976. After merging with Ogilvy in 1984, Ogilvy & Mather RS-TM dominated the local creative scene during the first decade and working with shareholders and suppliers in a way that is truly representative of the people of this country.

Today, we’re a company that reflects the energy and diversity of our country and are a BEE Level 3 contributor.
