Ogilvy & Mather Mumbai announces new management structure

Ogilvy & Mather has announced a new management structure for its flagship office - Ogilvy & Mather Mumbai.

Effective today, all Ogilvy Mumbai’s businesses and account management resources will be brought together under 5 clusters, each headed by an Executive Vice President & Cluster Head.

The 5 new EVPs and Cluster Heads are Abhik Santara, Ajay Menon, Hitesh Patel, Prakash Nair and VR Rajesh. These EVPs & Cluster Heads will form the core business leadership team for Ogilvy Mumbai. They will work with Kunal Jeswani, who is both CEO of Ogilvy India as well as the Head of Office for Ogilvy Mumbai, to drive Ogilvy’s flagship Mumbai office.

“Like any great team, we need to put the right people in the right roles; we need to work harder and train harder than the competition; and we need to play to win. Ogilvy Mumbai is a great team. And we’re playing to win. Abhik, Ajay, Hitesh, Prakash and Rajesh are our best young business leaders and we are empowering them to shape this agency. We are building for the future and this is only the beginning,” said Kunal Jeswani.

The new management structure is designed to empower Ogilvy’s young leaders and create a width of leadership to re-engineer the agency for growth over the next 5 years, drive greater focus on clients within each cluster, drive new capabilities and services, and a deeper focus on talent and training.
