MEC India appoints Vishal Chinchankar as Digital Leader

MEC India has roped in Vishal Chinchankar as Digital Leader – India. Prior to joining MEC, he was heading Prodigi, WPP’s digital production business. Based out of Mumbai, Chinchankar will report to T Gangadhar, Managing Director, MEC India and Tushar Vyas, Head of GroupM Interaction, South Asia.

Commenting on Chinchankar’s appointment, Gangadhar said, “Vishal is a heavy hitter in the digital arena, and we are very happy to have him helming one of our biggest priorities. In an increasingly connected world, we are trying to move digital closer to the center of the plate. I am sure Vishal’s rich experience will come handy.”
