Our Program Managers bring value to our clients by passionately and professionally serving the best interests of our clients and agency by scoping, planning and managing the effective and efficient delivery of our integrated solutions, campaigns, events, experiences, platforms, content, products and services.
They are an invaluable resource to the client Quartets (Delivery leads in particular) in helping to define and manage overall scopes of work, annual/project-based agency resources based on client budgets and project needs, and the integration with key partners throughout the process. Program Managers add value by interrogating every client brief and assignment and striving to solve our client’s more significant business problems, not just the immediate request at hand.
They are the trusted partner and point of contact for lower to mid-level clients, partnering with account leadership to deliver operational efficiencies, delivery excellence, project governance, resource optimization to increase speed-to-market and ROI for our clients and the agency.
PMs are efficient operators with strong commercial abilities and business and financial acumen. They are the gatekeepers of project profitability (margin control) through effective planning and management of project resources. They ensure every project meets set margin targets and additional investments are approved before project commencement or the critical points of change in project scope.
They are highly organized and accountable and can build relationships and collaborate with/draw on all Ogilvy’s mega businesses, expert groups, and partnerships to deliver best-in-class integrated solutions with maximum impact and efficiency
