Madhvi Pahwa, General Manager, Marketing, Coca-Cola India, is joining GroupM as Director Training, South Asia. She will be based in Delhi and will have additional responsibility for Consumer Insights, focusing on Maxus and MEC clients. Pahwa is expected to take charge of her new assignment in January 2006.

Commenting on her appointment, Ashutosh Srivastava, CEO, GroupM, South Asia, said, “We look forward to Madhvi coming on board and help us improve our overall capability and client focus. We have an ambitious training programme for our region and were looking for the right person to help roll it out.”
