Adfactors PR launches M&E and Consumer & Lifestyle practices

On its 14th anniversary, Adfactors PR has announced the launch of two new practices to cater to the Media & Entertainment, and Consumer & Lifestyle sectors.

Madan Bahal, Managing Director Adfactors PR Pvt Ltd, said, “We are pleased to announce the launch of two new practices. These are a part of our initiative to widen our service offerings and make the consultancy more relevant to the larger PR market.”

“Both verticals are specialist units created to fill gaps in the marketplace,” Bahal said, adding, “Our principal differentiators would be domain knowledge, a sound understanding of the socio-cultural context in the Indian marketplace, and unmatched reach in the high-growth Tier II and III markets.”

Both verticals will be led by experienced professionals. The Media & Entertainment will be headed by Pavan R Chawla, while Amitesh Banerjee will head the Consumer & Lifestyle practice. “Both leaders bring immense expertise and experience,” Bahal said, adding, “We aspire to build these as market-leading practices, just as we have achieved with our other verticals.”

Amitesh Banerjee, Vice President – Consumer & Lifestyle, brings over 30 years of multi-country experience in marketing and communications. He has served for 14 years as Head of Communications of the Seychelles Marketing Board, as well as a spokesperson for the Government of Seychelles. After returning to India, he worked in senior positions with Perfect Relations, Comma Consulting and Genesis Burson Marsteller, where he was Managing Partner – West.

Banerjee said, “I am excited with the immense opportunities in the Consumer & Lifestyle space. I am confident our service offering will be extremely compelling.”

Pavan R Chawla, Vice President – Media & Entertainment, has 24 years of experience across Media & Entertainment in corporate communications, content, editorial and marketing in senior roles. He brings invaluable experience from several organisations, including Sony Entertainment Television, INX Media, MAX, exchange4media Group, The Times of India Group, Dainik Jagran Group and the Indiantelevision Group.
