Ogilvy to review internal structure as head of strategy Mark Sareff departs agency

Mark Sareff OgilvyOgilvy Australia has said it does not intend to replace its national head of strategy Mark Sareff, who is leaving the agency after four years in the role.

Sareff joined Ogilvy in what was a newly-created position in August 211 with a remit to oversee strategic output across both Sydney and Melbourne offices, and Ogilvy Australia’s strategy and planning team.

“Mark was brought on board with a clear remit to bring a national approach to our strategy and planning,” Ogilvy Australia chief executive David Fox said. “Having achieved this, he has decided it is time to move onto his next adventure. 

“He leaves an established and highly capable planning and strategy team able to work on a range of diverse fields for local and national clients and solve business problems both great and small.”

Fox said there are no plans to replace Sareff with his departure providing the agency with an “opportunity to review the team structure and develop a recruitment plan accordingly”.

He praised Sareff as a being a “talented thinker” who worked across a “variety of successful campaigns and client teams”.

“We’d like to thank him for his contribution and wish him well for the future,” Fox said.
