Regional ECD, Ogilvy Singapore
Nikhil is a regional ECD working with Ogilvy Singapore. Born and bred in Bombay, he has led teams across Asia Pacific to create world-famous work for renowned brands like Ikea, Absolut, Heineken, Google, The United Nations, Guinness, Nike, Virgin Mobile and most recently, The Coca-Cola Company. Work that sometimes went beyond ads and became part of pop culture. Winning him over 89 shiny metals, including golds at Cannes Lions, One Show, Webbys, the Andys, D&AD, Clios, LIA and a Grand Prix at ADFEST. In 2015, ad-age featured him as one of the top 10 copywriters in the world. How they arrived at that sketchy data point is still up for debate. Off late, he's been applying his specialised persuasion skills to get his 3-yr old daughter to stay off screens. So far, it isn't working.
