Former ANSA McAL executive David Inglefield has been appointed as the chairman of Inglefield/Ogilvy & Mather (IOM) Caribbean, the local full-service communications company.

In a statement yesterday, IOM said that Inglefield brings to the company “a wealth of local and regional experience gained over his ten years in leadership roles in one of the largest and most dynamic business conglomerates in the region.”

He served as a consultant to the Trinidad & Tobago Olympic Committee, the Caribbean Council of Advertising Agencies, the Bureau of Standards, the Ministry of National Security, the Central Bank of Trinidad & Tobago, the Environmental Management Authority and several private sector organisations.

In recognition of his contributions to local and regional advertising, he was inducted into the Advertising Agencies Association of Trinidad & Tobago’s Hall of Fame in 2015.

IOM said that Inglefield has “built a reputation for himself as a revolutionary, a strategic mind and an industry innovator. His career can be traced back to the late 1960s and his future forward style was responsible for propelling many of our favourite brands into the market leading positions they occupy today.”
