by MarkLives (@marklives) Ogilvy & Mather South Africa has announced that co-chief creative officer, Chris Gotz, is leaving the agency to take up a senior position with O&M North America in September 2015.
Tseliso Rangaka will become executive creative director of Ogilvy & Mather Cape Town, while Pete Case, who is currently co-chief creative officer at O&M SA with Gotz, will assume sole responsibility for the output of creative work across the national agency group.
Rangaka first worked for O&M in Johannesburg for five years before moving to Cape Town 18 months ago. He has had responsibility for Cadbury, Coca-Cola, Metropolitan and several major SAB accounts, among others.
O&M Cape Town MD, Luca Gallarelli, says “Chris was responsible for an astonishing creative era for us but his departure presents a great opportunity for Tseliso, who encompasses an exceptional blend of talent, sheer determination and leadership skills.
“I am excited by the prospect of partnering with him in taking the agency to fresh new heights.”
