The CEO of Publicis, India, Praveen Kenneth S J, has put in his papers. Thirty one-year-old Kenneth, better known in the industry as the youngest ever CEO in the entire Publicis Network, took charge, as Publicis India's CEO in May 1999.
Though Praveen Kenneth’s term ends on April 15, he will continue as advisor to the agency for some more time.
The move comes close on the heels of French advertising agency Publicis' acquisition of Bcom3 - the group, which also owns advertising agencies Leo Burnett and D'Arcy MB&B internationally.
Kenneth started his career at Ogilvy & Mather, Bangalore, more than a decade back. He has also worked with McCann-Erickson and Mudra Communications, before joining Publicis.
