Lowe Lintas’ PK Sahgal elected President of Ad Club Hyderabad

The Annual General Meeting of the Ad Club Hyderabad, held on August 26, 2011, saw a change of guard in the executive committee. PK Sahgal, Branch Manager, Lowe Lintas has been elected President of the Club for the year 2011-12. He takes over charge from incumbent President C Ratnakar Rao of Breeze Advertising. Sahgal was Treasurer in the previous executive committee.

Commenting on his appointment, Sahgal said, “My responsibility is to continue the momentum that our ex-president Ratnakar has unleashed. These are indeed big shoes that I am stepping into and I promise to fill them the best I can.”

Reflecting back on his term, outgoing President Ratnakar Rao said, “It was a worthy effort by the team with a lot of help and support from senior ad pros. We hope there will be no looking back.”

JWT Mindset’s Ramakrishna and The Hindu’s Ch Venkatarathnam are the outgoing Vice-President and Secretary, respectively.

The other office bearers include Ranga Reddy of The Hindu as Vice President, Gemini TV’s Sanjay Reddy as Secretary, and Nitin Mulay of OTS Advertising as Treasurer. The executive committee members are Kulwinder Singh, CEO, Postnoon; Lenny Emanuel, ace lensman of Premier Studios; Ramu Srinivasan, MD, Wide Reach Advertising; and K Ramana Kumar, DGM, Sakshi newspaper. The evening saw some of the finest minds in advertising and marketing witness the new committee members take office.

After taking charge, Secretary Sanjay Reddy said, “I stand here in front of three stalwarts from the media - Anil Kumar of The Times of India, Ratnakar Rao of Breeze Advertising, and I Venkat from the Eenadu Group, who’ve shaped my views on advertising. As I assume this role, I know the responsibility and hope to live up to it.” The Secretary’s report was also upbeat with a firm resolve to accelerate the Club’s activity starting with an aggressive membership drive.

The Hyderabad Ad Club was founded in the year 1963 with the Marketing Club merging with it a couple of years later. Although it was fairly dormant in the 70s, ad veteran R Neelamegham of FD Stewarts’ fame and SK Khanna, who founded the Marketing Club, revived it in 1980. Last year, the 31-year old Club saw a revival of sorts with more corporate entities joining the Club. The last count saw close to 50 corporate members by the year-end.
