Bimal Nair to succeed Deb Sen at Rediffusion DYR

There has been a change of guard at Rediffusion DY&R’s Mumbai office. The company has appointed Bimal Nair as Executive Vice-President, after Deb Sen left for Malaysia to manage the Kuala Lumpur office. Nair, currently Vice-President and Branch Manager of Contract, Chennai, will be joining Rediffusion from the beginning of next month.

Sen had contributed extensively towards furthering the businesses of the agency’s clients in Mumbai. “He has been an asset for Rediffusion DY&R, contributing extensively towards managing and leading key clients in our Mumbai office. We are happy to have Deb within the Y&R fold and wish him all success,” said Mahesh Chauhan, President, Rediffusion DY&R, while announcing the change of guard.

We are sure that he will not only continue to do so, but also build our client’s businesses and give a fresh perspective to the communication.”

Nair takes charge of Rediffusion’s Mumbai office after successfully leading the Chennai office of Contract Advertising for close to three years. Prior to Contract Advertising, Nair had spent eight years in iContract, the direct marketing and customer relationship management division of Contract Advertising, based in Mumbai and Bangalore. Nair has handled several well-known brands including ICICI Bank, Shopper’s Stop, Cadbury’s, Kimberly Clarke, VSNL, Madura Garments, Plug In and HDFC. During his tenure at iContract, the agency won a number of highly prestigious awards like the Cannes Gold Lion, the Grand Effie, the Gold Effie and the ITSMA Awards.
