On the new role, Bhasin said, “This is a great opportunity and I am looking forward to highlighting the strength of Posterscope in Asia Pacific and ensuring that our clients continue to get the absolute best from our out-of-home offering.”

Posterscope, one of the world’s leading out-of-home communications agency is now in 12 cities across India and has picked up 34 new clients. The out-of-home medium is said to be growing rapidly, fuelled by innovation, consumer behaviour and advertisers’ needs.

Before joining Aegis Media, Bhasin’s career included 20 years with Lintas India, having joined them after his B.Sc (Hons) & MMS (Marketing). He serviced the Unilever business for eight years, before moving on to successfully head Lintas’ Chennai office.
