Dahllof succeeds Chris Graves, who was appointed global CEO of Ogilvy PR earlier this year. He shifts from his current role as MD of Ogilvy PR's Global Strategy and Planning Group.

The agency has also promoted three country MD's to positions of greater regional responsibility. Ogilvy PR China president Scott Kronick will now oversee North Asia, with Singapore MD Andrew Thomas taking on similar duties for Southeast Asia. John Studdert of Ogilvy PR Australia will oversee the five Australian agencies in which Ogilvy owns a majority, along with the other two in which it owns a minority.

'We need more senior leadership to cover our 1,000 professionals across 28 offices in 14 countries and this tight team of all-stars is unmatched anywhere,' said Graves.  'As the new CEO, Steve will have tremendous support and counsel.'

Dahllof joined Ogilvy PR in 1987, and has worked for the agency in a variety of roles, including time in both Asia and Europe. He will report to Ogilvy & Mather Asia-Pacific chairman Tim Isaac.
