Ogilvy Africa Appoints Akua Owusu-Nartey as Chief Client Officer for Sub-Saharan Region

Ogilvy Africa has announced the appointment of Akua Owusu-Nartey as chief client officer for Sub-Saharan Africa, with the goal of driving best-in-class operational excellence for the agency's biggest clients in the region.

Owusu-Nartey will be the head of connected culture, working closely with the leadership and people teams to embed Ogilvy's stated belief system and values into a lived experience for its people.

A respected marketing practitioner with over 18 years' experience, Owusu-Nartey has been a go-to strategist for clients looking to connect with their target audiences and as senior counsel, this role fits her abilities and the network's Africa vision, says Ogilvy.

Vikas Mehta, CEO of sub-Saharan Africa for Ogilvy, says, "Owusu-Nartey's experience, focus and leadership for the seven years she has led our business in Ghana and West Africa will help us optimally partner with our clients in the achievement of their success today and tomorrow. Respected as a professional, a leader and a human, Owusu-Nartey has the vision and tenacity it takes to transform an organisation from within."

"She brings tremendous insight from managing relationships with global clients and helping them understand consumer behaviour and motivations. I am delighted to have her on board in this new capacity and excited about the future Ogilvy we will create in Africa together," adds Vikas.

Owusu-Nartey describes herself as a "people person and problem solver at heart" and sees her dual role as a gift she will use to help Ogilvy Africa's people deliver their best work within a 'Connected Culture' that helps them thrive, have fun and grow as they help clients succeed.

"I couldn't be more excited to work with the people team to bring to life the connected culture we all desire to see at Ogilvy. I look forward to working even more closely with clients to ensure they are always ahead of the curve and help them succeed in being future-ready," concludes Owusu-Nartey.

Owusu-Nartey's role takes effect on Tuesday, 1 August and she will continue to be based in Accra as she collaborates with colleagues across sub-Saharan Africa for the future triumph of the agency within this region.
