Adfactors PR hires Ipshita Sen to lead Consumer Marketing practice

Ipshita Sen, a senior communications professional with multi-market and multi-discipline experience, has joined Adfactors PR as Senior Vice-President, Consumer Marketing.

Sen has nearly 20 years of international communications experience, having worked across the marketing spectrum of advertising, corporate communications and public relations. As the Consumer Marketing lead, she will be responsible for building an industry-leading practice, bringing to clients unique, insight-based campaigns that drive results and support their business objectives.

Welcoming Sen to the Adfactors family, Madan Bahal, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Adfactors PR said, “We are very pleased to have someone of Ipshita’s ability and experience join us. Her perspective on consumer marketing will add a new dimension to our service offering in this area – enabling us to adopt and incorporate global thinking and approaches into our clients’ campaigns.”

On her new role, Sen said, “I am very excited to be here at Adfactors PR. We know that brands, regardless of sector, are grappling with consumer engagement. Brands are trying to tell their unique stories and communicate how they fit seamlessly into the customers’ lives. In this ever-evolving market, Adfactors PR will offer clients truly customised and integrated solutions – both in consumer marketing and employee relations.”

A communications veteran, Sen started her career at Rediffusion DY&R in Kolkata. She has since worked with Leo Burnett in Mumbai and South East Asia, Y&R in Dubai and Gulf Finance House in the Middle East, North Africa and London. She has been associated with highly successful campaigns for clients such as P&G, HP, GE, Tata Global Beverages, Titan, PayPal and Bosch.
