WPP-owned Ogilvy and Mather is expanding its PR activities in the

Far East by opening up its first operation in South Korea.



The move has been prompted by Ogilvy and Mather clients SmithKline

Beecham and Seagram. A team from O&M Hong Kong has already been working

on Korean PR campaigns for the drugs and drinks firms - a dedicated

office will allow them to service these clients more easily.



Ogilvy and Mather Public Relations will be based in the Seoul offices of

the group’s established advertising joint venture, Korad Ogilvy and

Mather. O&M has drafted Mary Devereux, one of the senior directors from

its Hong Kong agency, to head the Korean office.



The Ogilvy and Mather PR agency brand is represented in 14 countries

across Asia. Its sister agency Ogilvy Adams and Rinehart operates in the

US and Europe.
