Jameson Irish Whiskey Appoints Ogilvy As Its New Global Creative Agency

Ogilvy recently announced that it has been selected by Jameson as its new global lead creative agency.

The account for the world’s most awarded and bestselling Irish whiskey, will be led by a borderless team spanning the agency’s global creative network. 

Brendan Buckley, global marketing director, Irish Distillers, commented, “It’s an exciting time for the Jameson brand as we seek to take the world’s most loved and shared Irish whiskey to the next level through breakthrough creativity and brand storytelling. 

"Creatively and strategically, Ogilvy impressed the team over the course of a rigorous pitch process, pairing a global outlook with local cultural relevance in our key markets, and we’re very excited to begin working together."

The Pitch Process


Ogilvy noted that it was awarded the business after a competitive pitch process managed by independent consultancy R3 and represents an expansion of the agency’s global relationship with Pernod Ricard.  

Antonis Kocheilas, Global CEO of Ogilvy Advertising, added,"We are triple delighted and twice as proud for having the opportunity to work for an iconic brand like Jameson and help make it the world's most shared spirit. During the pitch process our team fell in love with this amazing brand and was able to demonstrate the impact borderless creativity can help it have in culture. The best is yet to come."
