  • Overview

    Our Account Supervisors bring value to our clients by passionately and professionally representing the agency on a day-to-day basis.   They are the trusted partner and point of contact for mid-level clients.  Our Supervisors know how to develop effective strategies and briefs that lead to strong creative output. They hold productive agency and client meetings and are strong communicators who present persuasive POV’s and champion great creative work. They add value by interrogating every client brief and assignment, and striving to solve our client’s larger business problems, not just the immediate request at hand. They act courageously and with conviction and collaborate well with all capabilities within Ogilvy.
