Kapadia will also be managing DigitasLBi’s ‘centres of excellence’ model via a single profit and loss structure spanning 17 offices in six markets across Asia Pacific.

“Himani has been a key driver for DigitasLBi India’s business and its sustained growth for the past few years. Her ability to attract great talent and grow a successful, award-winning, profitable business in India is testament to that,” said Capon.

Meanwhile, Godbole will be responsible for helping transform clients’ businesses and help expand the agency’s service offering.
