Hi I am Debbie Dannheisser, I am currently heading up the TV and Radio production department at Ogilvy and Mather Johannesburg. I have been lucky enough to work for a few of the top South African advertising agencies throughout my career, namely BLGK, Leo Burnett, TBWA Hunt Lascaris, Grey South Africa and now Ogilvy & Mather Johannesburg. Besides managing and running, what I think is the best production department in the country, I have also personally produced more than 200 commercials and have been fortunate enough to work with some of the best directors in the country and I’m grateful to have been given the opportunity to have worked with many of the current top creative minds who are now in top positions across the globe. I love my job and all the talented people that surround me.
I have been married for more than 20 years and have two gorgeous teenage daughters and I live in Kyalami and to help control my high stress levels I take time out on my bicycle, I pedal my stresses away every weekend so I’m ready to start every Monday refreshed.
