Ogilvy & Mather names Katryna Mojica as CEO of Hong Kong, transitioning Adam O'Conor to APAC client role

Ogilvy shifts Hong Kong office leadership

Ogilvy & Mather has announced a duet of senior leadership changes, moving Katryna Mojica from Indonesia to Hong Kong, as Adam O’Conor transitions to president of global brand management for the agency in APAC full time.

Mojica has been moved to the Hong Kong office after driving double-digit growth for the Indonesian office, according to Ogilvy. She first started at the network in 1996 in the Philippines, eventually also holding roles in the Vietnam office.

A replacement CEO of the Indonesia office has not yet been appointed, according to Ogilvy.

Chris Reitermann, co-CEO of O&M Asia Pacific, said: “We’re thrilled to see Katryna take the helm of Hong Kong - one of our top 15 offices globally. Her track record over the last twenty years has been nothing short of remarkable. Her modern, integrated, and transformative work for our clients makes her the perfect candidate to see the continued success of this operation.”

Former Hong Kong CEO O’Conor, whose new role was first announced last year, will now be focusing on the new regional role full time. It’s a role that puts him in charge of over 20 of the APAC clients, representing a third of the business for the agency network in the region.

Kent Wertime, co-CEO of O&M Asia Pacific, said: “Since our announcement of Adam’s new position last January, our clients have faced increased disruption to their businesses. Now more than ever, they are looking to Asia Pacific for their next chapter of growth, and so it makes sense for us to invest further. We are delighted that Adam has agreed to take on this important position for us full-time.”

The news follows a string of senior appointments in the network’s Singapore office, including a new ECD and a newly created chief strategy officer role.
