Olga is a former advertising mogul who spent fourteen years as Global Creative Director of Saatchi & Saatchi. During her time at the company she lead numerous successful campaigns for a wide range of clients including Head & Shoulders, where she played a pivotal role in transforming the company into a billion dollar brand. She has consistently worked with A-list talent including Courtney Cox-Arquette, Denise Richards, Salma Hayek, and Kristin Davis. Other celebrities she successfully placed in commercials include Patricia O'Neal, Karl Malden, Frank Sinatra, Madonna, Ben Kingsley and Danny DeVito. She has directed over 25 commercials and films, produced 30 commercials and written hundreds of scripts. She has won two Cannes Silver Lions, one Cannes Bronze Lion, five Effies and three D&AD Awards.
She began her film career working in a financial capacity, helping unearth exciting new talent such as Guy Ritchie. Notable projects include Lock, Stock and Two Shooting Barrels, Junebug, and Master Harold and the Boys. Junebug landed Amy Adams an Oscar nomination, whilst all of these projects yielded high returns for investors. She also worked alongside director Lucy Bailey on Mugabe and the White African, which was nominated for 2010's Best Documentary Academy Award. Olga is currently in talks with HBO for one of Lucy's new projects, as well as producing an array of films with some of the most sought after talent of today.
Olga is a rare individual in the film industry. She brings an advertiser's eye to all her projects, allowing her not just to cherry pick films which demonstrate strong potential in relation to market trends and consumer patterns, but also to develop comprehensive strategies which ensure the films are marketed to their fullest potential. Where so many other films fail to reach their target audience because they were not marketed in the right way, Olga's blueprint for success ensures that all her projects achieve the highest possible yield.
