Ogilvy Global Managing Partner David Dahan moves to M&C Saatchi Melbourne

AUSTRALIA – In another major coup for M&C Saatchi Australia, David Dahan, Ogilvy’s Global Managing Partner on the groundbreaking Dove Worldwide account, has been appointed Managing Director of M&C Saatchi Melbourne.

“David is simply world class. He has a brilliant strategic mind honed by global roles working with some of the world’s most famous brands,” said M&C Saatchi Australia Group CEO Jaimes Leggett.

“He has an incredible creative record and I have no doubt he’ll be a perfect foil for M&C Saatchi Melbourne ECD Paul Taylor.”


Prior to his time at Ogilvy in London, Dahan spent five years with BBDO in Singapore in various strategic and account leadership positions and five years at Lowe in Paris, working on a suite of iconic and award winning brands, including: Mercedes-Benz, Tiger, MTV, Dulux, Johnson & Johnson, Aviva, Toyota, Dirt is Good and Hellmann’s.

“David’s global experience and entrepreneurial spirit really stood out during our global search. He was the clear stand out and we’re delighted he’s signed on with us,” said M&C Saatchi Melbourne Partner Bob Talbot.

“I have a great respect for David’s work on Dove. His hire is a real coup for us,” said Taylor.

“M&C Saatchi are pioneering thinkers who are able to challenge convention and respond to the ever-changing market in a way that allows them to deliver great, innovative work for their clients,” commented Dahan on the appointment.

“With my creative partner Paul Taylor, we will push the team to always bring fresh perspectives, innovative solutions and brutally simple ideas to the table.”

Dahan added that the opportunity to “help build and be part of the growth of the M&C Saatchi Group was just too tempting”.
