MUMBAI, INDIA — Narayan Devanathan will be moving on from the role of Chief Client Officer (CCO) at Dentsu India, ending his 11-year-long stint with the network.
As Devanathan steers his career path into a new journey to pursue his interests outside the advertising industry, the existing teams at Dentsu India will continue to drive and oversee client-centric solutions led by the market’s key leadership – Divya Karani, Amit Wadhwa, and Anubhav Sonthalia.
Commenting on Devanathan’s decision, Peter Hujiboom, interim CEO, Dentsu India said, “Narayan’s leadership has played an instrumental role in successfully aligning Dentsu India with the company’s global ambitions of becoming the most integrated advertising network in the world. His relentless commitment towards providing the finest solutions to our clients is commendable and I wish him all the best on his new endeavor.
There is a solid winning leadership in place, led by Divya Karani, Amit Wadhwa, and Anubhav Sonthalia – that continues to serve our clients with excellence, perfection, and passion. Our ambitions for India are on an upward trajectory and we are moving ahead full throttle.”
Devanathan added, “My association with Dentsu goes way beyond the varied roles that I have held within the network. Dentsu has been a life-shaping experience for me and the decision to take this big leap to pursue my interests outside the advertising industry was a tough one but something I am keenly looking forward to. The network is a rich powerhouse of expertise; the enormity of exposure it offers is way beyond many milestones. As I look back, I am filled with gratitude to have been closely working with many of the best talents and industry leaders within the network.”
