He will take over the additional responsibility of the company’s Delhi office with immediate effect. Abhik Santara, Vice President of Rediffusion-Y&R Delhi will report to Amitava Sinha.

Under Sinha’s stewardship the agency will aim to deliver better synergies to the brands that it works on through a larger talent pool and enhanced collaboration between offices.

“I am excited to work in a market as large and challenging as Delhi. My focus will be on delivering cutting-edge communication solutions to all the brands and pursuing growth aggressively,” said Sinha.
