Dnyanada Chaudhari to take charge of Media Services at HUL

As Rahul Welde, GM, Media Services, Hindustan Unilever Ltd (HUL), prepares to take on a larger role at Unilever as Vice-President, Media Services, Asia AMET (Africa, Middle East and Turkey), the FMCG giant has named his replacement. Marico’s Media Head Dnyanada Chaudhari is the new person on the job, and is expected to take charge in the New Year as Head – Media Services, HUL.

Executives familiar with the situation have confirmed the development.

Chaudhari would have dual reporting -- to Welde and to Nitin Paranjpe, Executive Director, Home & Personal Care, HUL.

Prior to this, she was with Marico for the last three years. She was made Head – Media, Marico, in February 2007. Prior to that, she has had experience in organisations like Lodestar Universal and the ICICI Group amongst others.

As is known, in August 2007, HUL effected some changes in its people structure. One of the decisions coming in the wake of this was the elevation of Rahul Welde. He would be relocating to Singapore from January 2008.
