Manish Porwal quits Percept Talent Management as CEO

It is learnt from reliable sources that Manish Porwal, CEO, Percept Talent Management (PTM), has quit and January 6, 2010 happens to be his last day in his current role. However, it is learnt that Porwal may continue in an advisory position, which still is being worked out. He had joined PTM close to two years back from Starcom Worldwide, where he was MD, South and West India. Porwal could not be reached for confirmation. It is not known yet who will replace Porwal.

This development comes just a day after Vinita Bangard, COO, Percept Talent Management, had put in her papers. Bangard was responsible for creating brand and personality synergies in order to enhance brand communication, equity and recall.

He had spent close to five years with Starcom. Prior to that, he had worked with the BBC, Vijay TV, Everest and FCB Ulka (now DraftFCB Ulka). He had been named the 7th most influential person in media by Economic Times (Brand Equity) in 2007 and in 2004 Pitch magazine had nominated him amongst the top 10 future leaders of the industry.

PTM is designed as a 360-degree model covering all aspects of exposure possible for a talent. It acquires talent across all genres and provides offerings in management areas like legal, financial, tax, wealth, health, diet, image and social responsibility. It also looks after a celebrity’s or talent’s professional contracts, presence in the digital domain, merchandising, publishing, media tie-ups, below-the-line events, public relations and grooming, relationship management and endorsements.
