Andreas Vogiatzakis

CEO, Omnicom Media Group, Malaysia

Born and raised in rural Crete in Greece, Andreas fell in love with marketing when he was 21. He then quit the prestigious Mathematics University of Athens to pursue his passion for advertising at the University of Florida, where he graduated with High Honors. He kick started his career at DMB&B in New York, and ever since forged a life journey spanning three continents and six countries dedicating his professional life to the ad industry.

From corporate America, he moved back to Greece where he managed JWT’s media for all its international clients and in 1997 he set sail to Asia. After setting D’Arcy Japan media on the road to success and a short stint with Wieden & Kennedy in Tokyo, he joined Starcom, restructuring it to be a strong international media agency in the Japanese market. He later moved to Taiwan at the helm of the MindShare group, cementing it to be the strongest market leader in the local media scene. In 2006, he joined Omnicom Media Group in Malaysia.

A firm believer in curating strategic partnerships and turning clients into enthusiastic referral sources, he transformed OMG into an award winning formidable force and has received numerous awards and accolades.
