Dentsu Communications opens second office in Bangalore

Dentsu Communications has set up its second office in Bangalore. The agency will now operate through two separate set-ups in Bangalore – Bangalore One and Bangalore Two. While Bangalore One will operate from the current premises located at 8, Vittal Mallya Road, Bangalore Two starts off at a swanky new office on Ulsoor Road.

Headed by Taira Kimura, Resident Executive Director, Dentsu Communications, Bangalore One will specifically manage the growing communication needs of the agency’s Toyota India business. Bangalore Two, led by Samrat Chengappa, General Manager, Dentsu Communications, will manage the agency’s other businesses, in addition to housing a special unit of Dentsu Digital, which offers specialised services in New Media for South India.

Commenting on the development, Rajesh Aggarwal, President, Dentsu India, said, “Seven years ago, we at Dentsu India started with the launch of our first agency, Dentsu Communications, in Bangalore. Over the years, the extremely aggressive, fast-evolving client-centric mindset here has brought in good revenue growth. Today, as we launch Bangalore Two on our seventh anniversary, we are certain that it will allow Dentsu Communications room for its next phase of growth.”

Giving the rationale behind having two offices in Bangalore, Ruchira Raina, Managing Director, Dentsu Communications, explained, “We ventured on this dual unit set-up to essentially meet with the growing width and depth of our client needs in Bangalore. Furthermore, with Bangalore Two, we are also introducing a host of new services in digital and mobile for our clients here. This also allows us the bandwidth to support new businesses.”

Kishore Subramanian, Vice President and Branch Head, Dentsu Communications, will spearhead the operations at both Bangalore One and Bangalore Two.

Dentsu Communications was launched in Bangalore in October 2003. Today, the agency has offices across Delhi, Chennai and Kolkata.
