Suranjan Das roped in as Executive Director at M&C Saatchi India

M&C Saatchi India has appointed Suranjan Das as Executive Director. In his new role, Das will be heading M&C Saatchi’s Mumbai office. Das had recently quit Fortune Communications Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of JWT India, where he was Senior VP & Managing Partner.

Welcoming Das into the M&C Saatchi family, Chairman and Managing Director Kamal Oberoi said, “It is great to have Suranjan as part of our senior team. He inherits an operation that is fast developing a reputation for creative excellence. I am certain Suranjan will ensure that our creative excellence continues and that our office will make great strides in developing and attracting new business.”

On his new role, Das said, “I am truly delighted to join the M&C Saatchi family. This is a terrific team with the perfect blend of youth, dynamism and experience. We share the same set of values and the same commitment to creativity and brand engagement.”

Das has worked across product categories in JWT and Fortune for over 20 years. He comes with a strong track record in driving growth and building enduring relationships. Having led large offices across India, Das is known for his ability to empower and motivate teams.

He was seconded to head Fortune Communications in January 2006. Prior to that, he was Vice-President and Client Services Director at JWT Mumbai. Under Das, Fortune saw an unprecedented growth in revenues and also won a slew of awards in the past three years – Abbies, AAAI, as well as finalist certificates at the Cannes and London advertising festivals.

At JWT, Das had handled various categories of businesses that included FMCG, consumer products (HLL - Lux, Sunsilk, Pears; GSL – Good Knight, Emami, Chateau Indage Vineyards), durables (Philips, VIP Luggage, Godrej Appliances), finance (Citibank, Stanchart Bank, Stanchart AMC, LIC), travel and hospitality (Air India, ITC Welcomgroup - Sea Rock), and beverages (Smirnoff), to name a few.
