McCann-Erickson’s Imran Khan joins Rediffusion DYR as Director, Client Servicing

Imran Khan, former Director, Client Servicing, at McCann-Erickson, Mumbai, has moved to Rediffusion DY&R, Mumbai, as Director, Client Servicing. At Rediff, Khan will work on three key brands – Indian Oil Corporation (Xtra Premium, Xtra Mile, Servo, Swagat and Xtra Care), the Taj Group of Hotels, and Wyeth (Anacin and Disprin).

At McCann, Khan had worked diverse brands like Stayfree, Shaw Wallace, Director’s Special, Royal Challenge, Boots, Clearasil, Sweetex and Strepsils.

Confirming the movement, Khan said, “After being in the business for a while and working on various brands across portfolios, the time had come to discover and probably challenge oneself, for there was a sense of sinking into a comfort zone. And that’s exactly what has brought me in my journey of advertising to Rediffusion DYR. It is a place that has probably stood the test of time, which comes from an impeccable understanding of brands, the filter through which they see them, and a pulse on the ever changing, evolving consumer. All of it leading to create strong brands across functions and recognition and appreciation from marketers. Reflective of a large amount of gray matter that persists within the company and few of the best brains that operate in the business.”

Khan’s earlier stints include Publicis India, where he worked on the Garnier Nutrisse and Siemens accounts, O&M, where he handled brands such as Cadbury’s (Five Star and Perk) and Globus.
