Indigo Consulting, Leo Burnett India’s full-service digital agency, has appointed Jose Leon as President to lead its Digital Design and Build vertical. Leon comes in from Adobe, where he was responsible for the Digital Marketing business across multiple domains in BFSI, Retail, Education, Automotive, among others, in collaboration with digital agencies.
Digital Design and Build typically comprises consulting to implementation and continuous innovation of clients’ large-scale digital transformative projects. In his new mandate, Jose will have the advantage of the Strategy, Technology, Project Management, Delivery and Operations functions reporting directly to him, across the agency’s Mumbai and Delhi offices. He will report to Rajesh Ghatge, Chief Executive Officer, Indigo Consulting, and will be based out of the Delhi office.
Welcoming Jose to his new role, Ghatge said, “Over the last few months, we have been executing a plan to evolve ‘design and build’ services at Indigo Consulting. We have 17 years of credentials in building, managing digital platforms and assets across the web, mobile and e-commerce, for large national and international clients. We are investing in leadership talent across Business Consulting, Analytics and UX thereby expanding capacities to partner clients across their digital transformation journey. Jose brings with him some incredible technology experience and has partnered with large clients in the private, public and government sectors – consulting them and implementing large digital transformation projects for them. He has been entrusted with the important task of driving the ‘build’ agenda at Indigo Consulting.”
Jose has 20 years of experience across Fortune 500 technology companies like Xerox, in addition to Adobe. At Adobe, he was also entrusted with driving transformative digital programmes for the Government of India.
Speaking about this new role at Indigo Consulting, Leon said, “This is an amazing opportunity. The TAM (Total Addressable Market) for Martec alone is between $32B–$40B here-and-now and Indigo Consulting, being an integrated digital agency has capabilities across all spheres of this market opportunity. We are continuously re-skilling and re-investing in our people in addition to bolstering our partnerships across the spectrum, from Design Thinking and Augmented Reality right up to Machine Learning, Real-Time Analytics and Block Chain. I am looking forward to leading Indigo Consulting’s design and build function, and helping it reach the vast potential I see in it.”
Outside of his work, Leon is constantly looking to make lives of citizens in his city better. He works with the local government authorities in his capacity as an Executive Member for the Federation of Resident Welfare Association, where he looks to leverage technology for solving social problems. He is also into endurance sports and is an avid golfer.
