Ogilvy India has announced some more changes in its senior management. Prateek Srivastava, currently President, Ogilvy, Bangalore, has been promoted to Group President – Ogilvy South. Srivastava will also function as a Board Partner in his new role and will head all three offices in the South. He will continue to be based in Bangalore.
Piyush Pandey, Executive Chairman and National Creative Director, Ogilvy India, said, “This new role is in line with our vision to consolidate our supremacy in the southern markets and is also a recognition of Prateek’s superb performance in guiding Ogilvy Bangalore to become the No. 1 agency in that city in more ways than one.”
Pandey added, “On a slightly sad note, I must also share with you that Kalpana Rao has decided to pursue a consulting career of her own. Kalpana set up the Human Resource and Talent function in Ogilvy at a time when we needed it most and is leaving us with a heavy heart but with a legacy of a wonderful team that she has built. We wish her all success in her new endeavour.”
Over the years Rao has played many innings with Ogilvy India – as Media Director before the media function moved to Mindshare, and more recently as Talent Director for the last eight years.
Consequently, there is another management change at the national level. Krishna Mohan, President, Ogilvy Chennai, takes on the role of National Head of Training and Development for Ogilvy India. “Krishna Mohan has very ably led our Chennai office to great successes over the last eight years and we are confident that he would be an invaluable asset to this function which is critical as we gear ourselves for the future,” commented Pandey.
