Titus Upputuru joins Dentsu Marcom as ECD

The Dentsu India Group announced today the appointment of Titus Upputuru as Executive Creative Director, Dentsu Marcom. In his new role, Titus will lead the Agency’s creative efforts on Honda (cars and bikes), Sharp and new businesses. Based out of Delhi, Titus will report in to Hiroshi Omata, Chief Operating Officer, Dentsu Marcom.

On joining Dentsu, Titus said, “Primarily, I am happy about joining Dentsu. I am at complete peace that my God is going with me. I like Dentsu's sincerity, passion and humility.
