Rajiv Sabnis quits Contract; will join Ambience Publicis as COO in May

After spending almost ten years with Contract, Rajiv Sabnis is on his way to join Ambience Publicis as Chief Operating Officer (COO). He has quit his duties as Senior Vice-President at Contract. Nakul Chopra, President, Ambience Publicis informs that he will join the agency in the last week of May.

The position was left vacant when Subhash Kamath joined Bates India as CEO. In the interim period, Kamath's responsibilities were overseen by Chopra. Kamath quit Ambience Publicis in January 2005. Like him, Sabnis too would report to Chopra.

Regarding the decision to appoint Sabnis, Chopra said, "There are several reasons. To give you the top line, Rajiv has the makings for all that we stand for. He is a perfect cultural match for the agency and, more importantly, his track record shows that he has what is required for catering to our clients efficiently."

Explaining his decision to move on, Sabnis said, "I needed a wider canvas to work on and after my interactions with seniors at Ambience, I realised that it is the higher challenge that I was looking for." He added that for the last one year he had been "searching for the what next in my career. The opportunity at Ambience provides a perfect platform for what I was looking for".

Sabnis joined Contract in December 1994 and had spent over eight years with Everest prior to that.
