Shavon Barua is joining Euro RSCG as Director of the agency’s Mumbai office. Barua takes charge from January 2010. She had earlier worked with Euro RSCG in Delhi, where she was Head of the Reckitt Benckiser business.
In between these two innings, Barua was with JWT as Executive Business Director. She has also worked with Bates, SSC&B Lintas, Rediffusion, Ambience and Dentsu. She has worked on clients like Reckitt, Colgate Palmolive, Pepsi Foods, Nestle, ITC and Lakme.
Suman Srivastava, Chief Executive Officer, Euro RSCG India, said, “Rajan Patel, the current Director of the Mumbai office, has expressed the desire to take some time off and pursue other interests. He was part of the team that started Euro RSCG in India and has been with us for nearly 14 years. I shall miss him, but wish him all the best.”
On Barua’s appointment, Srivastava said, “I am delighted to have her back and am sure that she will make a huge positive impact on the quality of the work and also help grow the business.”
Barua said, “It’s my second innings at Euro RSCG and I am looking forward to all the challenges and excitement. The people who are critical in our business are some of the very best at Euro, a good bouquet of clients and the opportunity to work with Suman again. I am glad to be back.”
