Leo Burnett national director Venkat Mallik steps down

Leo Burnett’s national director, Venkat Mallik has decided it’s time to move out. He has left the agency and informed sources share that he is on his way to take the charge of a new gaming company as Chief Executive Officer. Arvind Sharma, Chairman and CEO, Leo Burnett, informs that Mallik’s duties would be split between an existing team of three to four members.

Sharing more on the development, Sharma says, “Venkat has got an exciting opportunity his way. He had the chance to do a wonderful work at Leo Burnett. Putting people’s interest ahead of a short-term organisational interest here, we wish him all the luck in his forthcoming venture.”

In regards to the duties that Mallik looked after in terms of client relations and looking at new business opportunities, Sharma informs, “Within the organisation itself, we have people growing and becoming increasingly capable of handling additional responsibilities.”

Mallik, however, was not available for comments at the time of filing this story. His experience prior to this has a substantial stretch of advertising stint included. From account director at James Walter Thompson to Senior Product Manager at Unilever and then the position of a director at Euro RSCG, indicate the various kinds of responsibilities he has held in his career so far.
