Since 1948, Ogilvy has existed to build global brands. Our founder culture is represented in every office around the world and we continue to abide by the same fundamental principles that David laid out for us in Ogilvy on Advertising. Our current teams still abide by those values, while recognizing the obvious market dynamic shifts that have occurred.
Creativity is in our DNA. It is enacted through a collaborative spirit that connects our network, which comprises 132 offices in 83 countries—with a team of over 2,200 strong in the U.S.—and operates under one P&L. The intersection of talent and capabilities is where we best innovate and operate—we call this borderless creativity. It ascends any of the barriers that too often restrict talent and the ideas it generates. We are proud of our vision which unifies our people, and of our operating system that unifies how we work regardless of where we are. However, Ogilvy’s continued success isn’t created by a single philosophy, process, or snazzy technology. The strength of Ogilvy lives in our people. Our connected family of over 15,000 operate as one agency without barriers, filters, walls, fears, and most importantly, without egos. We thrive on a diversity of opinions, skills, and expertise. Our unique cultures and capabilities build off each other’s ideas, activating them regardless of where they originate—all in service of our clients.
