Tseliso Rangaka has been appointed as FCB Joburg and Hellocomputer Johannesburg’s group CCO, replacing Ahmed Tilly, who is leaving FCB Joburg.
Rangaka succeeded Chris Gotz as Cape Town ECD in 2015 and has been with Ogilvy South Afrrica for 13 years across both the Johannesburg and Cape Town offices.
Rangaka studied journalism at Rhodes University and went to the AAA School of Advertising where he realised a chance to turn creative writing into a career. He has worked with vast numbers of brands from Draftfcb, which was then named FCB Africa (now Nahana Communications), Ogilvy & Mather Johannesburg and Ogilvy Cape Town.
Thabang Skwambane, FCB Joburg and Hellocomputer Johannesburg group MD, said, ’Tilly has imbued our work with a real sense of relevance for the South African market; he has unselfishly nurtured many exceptionally talented young people. We are grateful that he chose to spend a chapter of his journey at FCB for the last three years and we’re sad he is leaving us, but we wish him the best of success in the next chapter of journey. That said, we are exceptionally excited to welcome Rangaka, who has been an inspiration to so many in the industry since he started his career at FCB and throughout his journey at Ogilvy.’
‘His commitment to pushing creative boundaries and making a positive impact in the South African marketplace resonates deeply with FCB Joburg’s values. I’m convinced he’ll take the agency’s already strong creative team to new heights and can’t wait to reap the rewards of his strong work ethic and understanding of what it takes to create truly iconic South African work,’ said Skwambane.
