About Ogilvy South Africa

Who We Are

In 1948, David Ogilvy founded the agency that would become Ogilvy. Starting with no clients and a staff of two, he built his company into one of the largest advertising networks in the world.

Today, we operate as a creative network in 132 locations across 83 countries. We continue our rich legacy through borderless creativity—operating, innovating, and creating at the intersection of talent and capabilities. Our experts in Public Relations, Growth & Innovation, Advertising, Health, and Experience work fluidly across our offices. 

We see ourselves as a company that does more than ads, we inspire brands and people to impact the world.
