Microsoft appoints Meenu Handa as Corporate Communications Head

Microsoft has appointed Meenu Handa as Corporate Communications Head for India. It may be recalled that Handa was due to join Ogilvy Public Relations Worldwide (Ogilvy PR) as National President, India in September, but instead joined Microsoft. “Yes, I was to join Ogilvy PR, but before I could, Microsoft happened and here I am and my work at Microsoft has just begun,” Handa said.

Handa comes to Microsoft from IPAN, where she had worked for the past 15 years. She has worked extensively across various industry sectors for clients such as HLL, POSCO, EDS, HCL Group, Allied Domecq, Swatch Group, Star TV, MTV and Boeing, and various industry associations.

Handa’s strengths lie in the area of crisis communications, issues management, advocacy, corporate positioning and marketing communications.

Meanwhile, Meenakshi Bhalla, who is one of the senior Business Directors at Ogilvy Advertising, is ready to don the role of National PR Head of Ogilvy PR. Bhalla is an old hat at the agency. In her more than 10 years of work experience at Ogilvy she has serviced big and reputed clients like STAR, Maxwell, Pidilite, and Amaron among others.

John Goodman, CEO (India & South Asia), Ogilvy, said, “We are excited and happy that Meenakshi has accepted the position and look forward for a great tenure ahead.”

Her new role will be to oversee and continue to expand Ogilvy PR’s national network, which is widely recognised as a leader in terms of client base, professional talent, and award winning work.
