Sanjay Tandon elevated to COO of Draftfcb Ulka Delhi

Draftfcb Ulka has appointed Sanjay Tandon as Chief Operating Officer of its Delhi operations. Prior to this, Tandon was Senior Vice President at the Delhi office and was handling the entire Tata Docomo business.

Commenting on Tandon’s appointment, Arvind Wable, Executive Director & CEO, Draftfcb Ulka Delhi, said, “Sanjay Tandon’s appointment to the top echelons of the agency once again reinforces our values and commitment to growth from within, and I am certain that he will lead the Delhi office to greater heights of business growth, team building, brand building and creative excellence.”

Tandon will replace Sanjeev Bhargava, who has decided to move on to take up a new assignment outside the agency. Bhargava has spent over 18 years with the agency, with the last seven years as COO of Draftfcb Ulka Delhi.

Commenting on the development, Tandon said, “It’s a special feeling to be entrusted with leading a gold standard team at Draftfcb Ulka Delhi. Creating and building BrandWealth for our clients remains our singular objective, and my personal energies along with the team will be dedicated towards realising this.”

Tandon has spent over 10 years in the agency. He had spent the first few years of his working life in sales and marketing, before joining FCB Ulka in 1997. He spent the next seven years handling major accounts like LML, HP, Samsung, Mother Dairy and British Airways, and rose to the position of Client Servicing Director. Post this, he took up assignments at Bates as VP and then at JWT, where he led the business of Nokia, Yamaha and Pepsico Flavours and Juices, respectively.

Tandon returned to Draftfcb Ulka in 2009 to successfully lead the Tata Docomo business.
