Equus Red Cell has elevated Associate Vice-President Ajay Uthaman as Senior VP-West & South. Uthaman, who took charge of the agency’s Mumbai operations 18 months ago, will now be squarely in charge of both the Mumbai and Bangalore operations. He joined Equus Red Cell three years ago from American Express.
Speaking of his elevation, Swapan Seth, CEO, Equus Red Cell, said, “Ajay has cobbled together a great team and added massive momentum to our business in Mumbai. The new business acquisitions have been swift and successful, and current clients have expanded the width of responsibility on the back of Ajay and his team. Furthermore, I think his enthusiasm in setting up the Bangalore operations is also playing a critical part in our play down South. He has led from the front and supported from behind.”
Said Uthaman on his elevation, “I am thrilled at the new appointment and with the faith Suhel and Swapan have shown in me. As they say ‘no man is an island’. I however owe this to the efforts of my tremendous team.”
Uthaman has earlier worked in Delta Airlines as Sales and Marketing Manager for three years. He has also worked in American Express TRS as Head-Platinum Division for three years, before joining Equus Red Cell as Group Account Manager. He was later elevated as AVP.
