Named Malaysia's joint top creative in this year's Campaign Brief Asia 2017 Creative Rankings, Jingwei (pictured) will report to Gavin Simpson, Chief Creative Officer at Ogilvy & Mather Malaysia.

Jingwei will principally lead Ogilvy's signature Coca-Cola output while there will be myriad other cross brand and function opportunities in the agency.

He has also won various awards - both locally and regionally - from shows such as Kancils, Spikes and Adfest. He received a Gold Kancil and a Silver for Lazada's 2016 brand film Blastoff, and comes from his immediate previous role as Senior Writer at Leo Burnett Kuala Lumpur.
David Mayo, Chief Executive Officer of Ogilvy Malaysia said, "We are extremely pleased to have Jingwei join our new team in KL. He brings a thoroughly modern mix of creative skills to our agency as part of our next chapter at Ogilvy Malaysia and he will work cross-functionally with our Digital and Social and Content teams from his base at the centre of our new agency model."

Jingwei, obtained his bachelor's degree in Visual Communications from Birmingham City College in 2010. He said that he was excited to join Ogilvy Malaysia because it presents new and interesting challenges for him, and that he would be glad to add to the already storied creative output of Ogilvy Malaysia.
