Ogilvy Promotes Devika Bulchandani to Global President

Ogilvy has announced the promotion of Devika Bulchandani to Global President of Ogilvy expanding her global responsibilities to all five Ogilvy business units: Advertising, PR, Experience, Health, and Growth & Innovation.

“This new global role is a recognition of the dynamic partnership we developed over the past year as we’ve modernized Ogilvy’s offering, invested in talent, and delivered for our clients,” said Andy Main, Global Chief Executive Officer.

“I look forward to working with Dev as we further accelerate Ogilvy’s transformation at this moment of creative innovation, societal challenge, and growth opportunity in our industry.”


Bulchandani joined Ogilvy in early 2021 as Global Chairwoman of Advertising and CEO of Ogilvy North America. She previously served as President of North America for McCann Worldgroup. Prior to that role, she was President of McCann New York, the company’s lead office.

She is a founding member of Times Up Advertising, where she championed equality for women in advertising, particularly for women of color. In 2017, she was named “Working Mother of the Year” by She Runs It and is also a previous recipient of the AdColor Innovator Award. She has volunteered her time for numerous industry and community projects, including work with the Ad Council and is an active board member of the Ad Club in New York.

“Partnering with Andy, and now Liz, over the past year has been invigorating as our respective backgrounds converge at the intersection of our client’s evolving needs and where our industry is heading,” said Bulchandani.


“I believe 2021 was a foundational year for our team and I’m excited about all the ways we will build on our momentum through innovative, effective creative work that inspires people and brands to impact the world.”
