Neo-Mashigo-co-Executive-Creative-Director-Ogilvy-Mather-Johannesburg.jpgOn Tuesday we’ll be giving you the chance to chat to our new Executive Creative Director, Neo Mashigo. He kicked off his career in the industry at Network BBDO before joining O&M JHB, previously as creative group head. He left the agency to work at SABC as a scriptwriter before moving to Draftfcb where he remained until his return to the O&M JHB fold in February 2013. He has clocked up notable recognition in the industry, winning a New Broom Award at the 2012 Financial Mail Adfocus awards. He is an executive member of The Creative Circle and a member of the Loerie Committee.

Through his involvement in The Creative Circle, he’s also championed getting new talent into the industry. He believes that it’s really important that the industry helps to mentor young talent and give them an opportunity to work in a real agency environment.

He’s also the guy behind phrases like “We’ve been having it” a big believer of making African work that’s true to its roots.  So if you’d like to ask him about what it feels like to write a line that becomes part of the cultural zeitgeist; how to get your big break in Adland; or how long he’s been growing on those dreads, tweet your question to @NeoMashigo and @OgilvyJoburg on Tuesday between 14:00 and 15:00 with #AskJogilvy.
