NEW YORK: Ogilvy & Mather has promoted Michael Dobak to CEO of Ogilvy & Mather West, overseeing all West Coast operations for Ogilvy Public Relations, O&M Advertising, and OgilvyOne.
The move is effective immediately. Dobak has worked at Ogilvy & Mather for five years, previously serving as global MD on the firm's IBM business for the last two years.
Based in Los Angeles, Dobak will focus on connecting with technology, entertainment, and gaming companies on the West Coast.
Nathan Friedman will continue in his role as regional MD for Ogilvy PR West, which is made up of San Francisco, Los Angeles, Sacramento, and Denver. Friedman was promoted to the position from Chicago MD last year.
Before joining Ogilvy & Mather in 2008, Dobak worked for Arnold in Boston, where he led the Progressive account.
