With dual NCD structure, JWT gears for 2007

JWT has a new NCD in Josy Paul and that, coupled with Agnello Dias’ elevation to NCD, has given the agency a dual NCD structure. The new structure has led to the division of duties between the two directors geographically. Colvyn Harris, CEO, JWT, believes that this further allows them to concentrate on talent. Harris said, “The development and management of attracting new and right talent will be a key focus area for 2007.”

Speaking on the role of two NCDs, he said, “We have one creative vision but we will implement it with two leaders now. Josy will look after Delhi, while Agnello will look after Mumbai and we will split all offices equally between the two.”

He also informed that another change for Dias, in addition to the responsibilities of Mumbai, Bangalore and Kolkata offices, would be for Levers product Radiant. Dias has been made the global head for Radiant, which is a Unilever detergent brand.

Harris said, “JWT has gone from strength to strength and we want to keep it that way. Our focus really is on talent development, talent management, attracting the right talent and retaining the right talent. The next thing would be developing the skill and capabilities in all of them which will help in delivering to our current base.”

Harris stated, “There is no agency that has clients like JWT and we want to be able to offer them the best. We are working on a new digital offering for them. It’s still too early to talk about this, but the idea is to offer something more to clients at a strategic level.”

Harris said that the new structure allows JWT a closer function at all the components of the agency and that he sees this converting into benefits for JWT, both in terms of revenues and industry accolades.
