Kamal Oberoi has resigned from M&C Saatchi India as its India Chairman and MD to pursue other professional and academic interests. The company has yet to announce the replacement.
Kamal Oberoi had founded M&C Saatchi’s India operations in October 2005. Since then, the agency grew to become one of the top 20 best advertising agencies in the country. He leaves behind a team of highly seasoned professionals capable of taking the company forward.
In a prepared statement, Kamal Oberoi said, “It has been great challenging and rewarding experience. I am grateful for support from all colleagues and for clients for reposing their faith in us. The company is poised for next stage of growth.”
Chris Jaques, CEO, M&C Saatchi Asia, said, “Kamal Oberoi is a legend in the industry, and rightly so. He has been an amazing leader of M&C Saatchi since the day he launched our company in India in 2005. Thanks to Kamal, M&C Saatchi is privileged to have a blue-chip client list and a first-class management team – one that is ready to take the company into the next phase of its exciting development. I would like to thank Kamal for his determination, his professionalism – and for his friendship. I wish him well in this new phase of his life, and I thank him for his extraordinary contribution to M&C Saatchi.”
