Nelly Andersen

En fremsynet ener, mentor og menneskekender 

I sidste uge mistede Ogilvy, og hele marketingbranchen, én af sine helt store og toneangivende personligheder. På det, der ville have været David Ogilvys 110-års fødselsdag, gik Chief Client Officer, Nelly Andersen, bort efter kort tids kræftsygdom.

I mere end 30 år har Nelly været med til at definere Ogilvy i hele verden. Internationalt var Nelly kendt som The Viking Queen. Hun var nemlig fra Aarhus, hvor hun startede sin karriere inden for reklamebranchen for at fortsætte den hos Ogilvy & Mather Direct i København.

Allerede dengang havde Nelly stærke og modige holdninger og satte sig for at rykke Ogilvy fra plads nummer 57 til top-5. Derefter gik turen til en stilling som landechef for Ogilvy i Stockholm, så til EMEA som CEO for RMG Connect og til sidst New York som Chief Client Officer.   

Hele vejen igennem var Nelly meget tydelig i forhold til, hvad hun ville, og hvordan det skulle opnås. Hun sagde tingene ligeud, men med stor respekt for det enkelte menneske. Hun gik forrest for at flytte kunderne derhen, hvor de gerne ville være, samtidig med, at hun havde et enestående internt fokus på Ogilvys medarbejdere.

For både Ogilvy Danmarks tidligere og nuværende landechefer har Nelly efterladt et markant aftryk.    

”Nelly var en ener. Hendes vid, mod, internationale udsyn og sunde fornuft var noget helt særligt. Og der fandtes kun én Nelly, som alle, høj som lav, mødte. Hun så længere fremad end de fleste og kunne ikke rystes af bump på vejen. Hendes evne til at tage kunderne i hånden gennem en dyb forståelse for deres forretning var ganske unik, og hun kunne, om nogen, samle mennesker omkring sig med spot på muligheder – begrænsninger var for alle andre”

siger tidligere Ogilvy Danmark CEO (1995-2009), Karen Østergaard.

Jimmy Schougaard, CEO for Ogilvy Danmark (2009-2012) og Global Head of Customer Engagement & Commerce (2012-2020), som også have fornøjelsen af at arbejde sammen med Nelly i New York, fortsætter.

”Nelly var først og fremmest en stærk menneskekender. Hun kunne læse både kunder og kolleger og bruge den forståelse til at skabe stærke, vidtrækkende partnerskaber mellem brands og Ogilvy. Hendes jyske, kølige ro og afvæbnende facon gjorde Nelly til en centrifugalkraft, som kunder og kundeansvarlige blev draget af. Hendes dør var altid åben, og der er næppe en leder i Ogilvy, der ikke har spurgt Nelly til råds. Selv ønskede hun aldrig at være i centrum eller få æren for noget. For Nelly handlede det om at hjælpe andre med at gøre det godt… at Ogilvy gjorde det godt.”

Pia Tandrup, CEO for Ogilvy Danmark (2012-2019) mindes Nelly som

”en institution i Ogilvy, respekteret, afholdt og fuld af anekdoter. Trods mange år i en international organisation bevarede Nelly den særlige danske ligefremhed og uimponerethed, som kan være svær for udlændinge at forstå. Men kombineret med hendes store omsorg og interesse for andre gjorde det hende til en ener og en stjerne i Ogilvy.”  

Nuværende CEO for Ogilvy Danmark, Morten Frederiksen, istemmer

”Nelly var central i udviklingen af Ogilvy og ikke mindst i, hvordan topledere skulle håndtere kundernes behov. Jeg oplevede selv tilbage i 2014, hvordan Nelly blev hentet ind på Ogilvy’s Management Development Programme for at dele sin viden og erfaring med 20 ledere fra EMEA. Alle var imponeret over hendes tilgang, og i dag er det tydeligt, at hun allerede dengang forudså markedets udvikling og kundernes behov på meget imponerede vis. Hun fortjener vores allerstørste hyldest og respekt og vil blive savnet af os alle.”  

Nelly vidste godt, at livet ikke altid var fair. Men hun vidste, at det var fuld af muligheder og forstod at udnytte dem. Æret være Nellys minde. Vi vil fortsætte med altid at gøre vores allerbedste, som Nelly ville have ønsket.   

Det var ligeledes Nelly’s ønske, at der blev stiftet en mindefond i hendes navn med det mål at samle penge ind til kræftforskning i Kræftens Bekæmpelse. Skulle man ønske at donere, kan det ske til:  

Danske Bank 
Holmens Kanal afdeling 
Holmens Kanal 2 
1090 København K 
SWIFT-BIC: DABADKKK 
IBAN: DK16 3000 0000 00 1155 

Besked til modtager: ’Nelly Andersen’ 

Der vil blive afholdt mindereceptioner for Nelly i både England og USA, når COVID-19-restriktionerne tillader det.

What’s Next: Steering Brands through COVID-19. Thursday March 26th 17:00 CET

How should your brand plot a course through this world-redefining period? Drawing from prior experiences with SARS, the financial crisis and the current realities, our panel will discuss both short-term survival as well as long-term brand health.

We are currently in the midst of the most disruptive global crisis seen in decades. There is little doubt that the aftermath of COVID-19 will have life-changing impact on societies, political systems, and economies. And it will likely be the single-most important catalyst in modern history for changing consumer behaviour and attitudes.

This is a defining moment for Brands, and how they react – what they do – will not only impact short-term survival, but more important, the long-term brand health that is critical to future growth.

Our speakers will draw on prior experiences with SARS, the 2008 Financial crisis and the current realities in Asia, Europe and the US. In this week’s webinar they will discuss what your brand should be thinking about and how to plot a course through this world-redefining period.

Can you join us for the free webinar on Thursday 26th March at 17.00 CET?

Sustainable Enough is Not Good Enough. While the youth of today continue to be catalysts in the drive toward environmental action, brands have been busy getting involved in environmental and other social good issues through ongoing or sporadic corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives.

Making Brands Matter for the Generations to Come intends to help brands understand how they can help make the world, and their business, better faster by intentionally making CSR efforts grounded in their brand’s core.

Leveraging frameworks and data from experts in the field, academia, as well as by observing over a dozen brands, this paper tells the story of the origins of CSR, the evolution of consumers in their demand for sustainable goods and services, and brands’ pitfalls and success stories in executing CSR activities.

From Conspicuous Consumption through to modern day Conscious Consumption, this paper examines how consumers have shifted over the years which has driven brands to embark on CSR in different ways. From one-off projects through to business models built on circular design, brands have been active participants in CSR but there’s still a long way to go.

The paper closes with key actions brands can take to expediently make CSR a genuine and authentic component of their brand’s core going forward.

Key takeaways from the paper:

  • Brands are dabbling in CSR across a spectrum – from one-off initiatives, to those who have managed to become fully purpose driven ecosystems
  • There’s a price tag that often comes with sustainability – the future state of conscious consumption is when sustainable products are affordable and attainable across spending power
  • A brand’s core embodies a brand’s purpose, positioning, and action plans – any and all CSR initiatives need to stem from this core and be felt internally as well as externally
  • There’s an abundance of sustainable activity happening in the world today – brands that matter will take a hard look in mirror and spend the time to intentionally align their CSR activities to their brand’s core

We asked Dominic Walters, Vice President Marketing Communications & Strategy at Inmarsat Aviation, what was crucial to know in B2B Customer Engagement?

Inmarsat Aviation – Bring it on!

We were brought on a journey of customer engagement at the morning session at Ogilvy Denmark. Over the last five years, Inmarsat Aviation has been working on how to build a strong brand in an industry which is undergoing a digital transformation. With help from Ogilvy, Inmarsat Aviation managed to disrupt the status quo and enlighten its target audience. In the first six months alone, a targeted digital and experiential activity engaged 60% of target market accounts. Thought leadership content and partnerships, combined with high-touch media relations management, put Inmarsat’s name firmly at the center of the industry conversation. Brand awareness jumped to 67% within the industry – placing Inmarsat Aviation jointly alongside the leading competitor.

We asked Nik Myers, Planning Partner, Ogilvy London, to give his take on what’s is trending in B2B Customer engagement?

Don’t start with tech

In February 2019 Ogilvy Denmark hosted an event with IBM on Customer Engagement in B2B marketing. The opening presentation at the event was “Don’t start with tech” which contained an extensive and exciting elaboration on The Who, Why, What and How of Customer Engagement within B2B. The presentation was done by Jimmy Schougaard, WorldWide Chief Strategy Officer, Customer Engagement & CRM at Ogilvy.

For the first time ever, Ogilvy and IBM join forces to create a special session for Scandinavian marketeers like you in B2B industries.

Digital initiatives within pharma and medtech are often driven by high ambition and large investment. Problem is, they rarely live up to their full potential. Digital tools tend to be launched as one-off add-ons not anchored in a wider business strategy. Today however, more and more companies are recognising the importance of integrating digital into the core of their business. This interview with Ogilvy NY’s Ritesh Patel was recorded june 2018.
