Achan, who is currently responsible for the creative as well as business output for Rediffusion Y&R’s South offices, will now take on a national role and partner Sagar Mahabaleshwarkar as Chief Creative Officer.

Commenting on Achan’s elevation, Rohit Misra, President, Rediffusion Y&R, India & Sri Lanka, said, “With her successful handling of all our South offices, Minakshi has clearly demonstrated that she can take on a larger responsibility. I believe the team of Sagar and Minakshi will add momentum to the level of creativity within the organisation, accelerating our creative evolution and enhancing our creative product.”

On her new role, Achan said, “Rediffusion has an outstanding talent pool across the board, and I look forward to working with all of them.”
