Subhash Kamath, COO, Ambience Publicis, is on his way to join Bates India as CEO. Industry sources share that Kamath would step into his new responsibilities on February 1.
With Kamath vacating the post, Ashok Kurien, Chairman and Managing Director, Ambience Publicis shares that Nakul Chopra, President, Ambience Publicis, would take care of the responsibilities for now.
Confirming the development, Kurien says, “We are still in the process of finding a replacement and it would take around two to three weeks to finalise on one. As President, Nakul would be taking care of the responsibilities until then.”
After Rajiv Agarwal left Bates India as Managing Director and CEO in October 2004, Ujjal Gupta, Bates COO, was responsible for the day-to-day affairs of the organisation.
