Kaustav Das joins Ambience Publicis as Executive Vice President, South

Publicis Ambience has appointed Kaustav Das as Executive Vice President for South. He will be responsible for launching the Publicis Ambience Bangalore office. Das moves from Orchard India, where he had a short stint as Managing Director.

Commenting on his new appointment, Das said, “The Publicis philosophy of ‘Contagious Communication’ is so potent that it can actually shape the direction that media neutral communication will take in future across the world. I am delighted to be the newest evangelist of this philosophy and feel privileged to be given the opportunity of working with one of the finest teams in the business.”

Aniruddha Banerjee, President and COO, Publicis Ambience, said, “We are very thrilled with Kaustav joining us. He has just the right credentials, passion and energy that Publicis Ambience needs right now. Our Chennai venture has already become very successful, and now with Kaustav here, Bangalore is also set to be a great success.”

Das began his career in 1992 with Sobhagya Kolkata, before moving on to Sistas Kolkata. He then shifted cities to O&M Bangalore, where he handled the UB Ltd beer portfolio. His next stint was with Lowe (then Lintas India), where he went on to head the Hindustan Lever foods portfolio (Dalda, Flora, Kissan). While at Lowe, he was seconded to Levers as Brand Manager on the prestigious Dalda Activ project, following which he headed Account Planning at Lowe’s Bangalore office.

After two short stints at Mudra Chennai and RK Swamy BBDO, Das headed EuroRSCG Chennai for over two years before taking over as VP South, TBWA\India. He grew TBWA\India’s South operations by 400 per cent in his 30-month stint there and earned himself the nickname ‘Son of a Pitch’ among his colleagues and friends.
