Ogilvy promotes Oosthuizen to global role
Ogilvy South Africa has announced the promotion of Joanna Oosthuizen, its chief operations officer, to director public relations & influence for Ogilvy’s Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region. In her new role, she’ll be based in London but will remain active within Ogilvy SA.
Oosthuizen has been with the ad agency group for 15 years and has been responsible for building Ogilvy’s PR & influence practice, growing it from 16 employees into an operation of more than 100 across three offices.
In 2014, she received an Ogilvy Giant Award as one of the top-performing senior people at Ogilvy worldwide and, in 2016, she was named in the PR Powerbook as one of the top PR practitioners globally. In 2018, she was promoted to COO for Ogilvy South Africa, a move that placed several operating units under her care. In her role as COO, she integrated these operating units to create greater efficiencies within the company while still maintaining the deep specialisms that clients value.
