Dentsu Webchutney appoints Ajay Ahluwalia as Executive Creative Director

Dentsu Webchutney, the digital agency from Dentsu Aegis Network, has roped in Ajay Ahluwalia as Executive Creative Director. He will be based out of the agency’s Gurgaon office. His last stint was with Contract Advertising, where he handled some of the biggest brands in the country including Microsoft, Ten Sports, and JK Tyre.

With over 20 years of cross-category, cross-platform experience along with a diverse set of exposure spanning sales, marketing, photography, martial arts, and creative, Ahluwalia is all set to lead the charge for the agency.

The keen motorcyclist and the black-belt holder expressed his delight saying, “I’m excited to join Dentsu Webchutney and the young brigade that is bubbling with energy to break conventions with digital innovations.”

Not only has Ahluwalia launched brands like Samsung and Bacardi in India, but he has also helped nurture names like NIIT, and set up Oxygen – one of India’s first agencies to engage in the digital workspace.

Commenting on Ahluwalia’s appointment, Sudesh Samaria, Chief Creative Officer and Co-Founder, Dentsu Webchutney said, “It’s great to have someone of Ajay’s experience onboard in a digital environment, especially when the lines between mainline and digital are blurring as we speak. We look forward to him driving infectious ideas which resonate with the Dentsu Webchutney culture.”
