Ajay Gahlaut, who recently quit as Chief Creative Officer of Ogilvy North and Deputy Chief Creative Officer of Ogilvy India, is believed to be joining Publicis.

Galaut is expected to succeed Bobby Pawar, who quit Publicis last month. Pawar was the Managing Director and Chief Creative Officer, Publicis Worldwide South Asia. He will now be the Chairman of Havas Group, India.

The development has been confirmed to exchange4media by highly-placed sources. We reached out to Gahlaut for a confirmation, but are yet to get a response.

Gahlaut worked with Ogilvy as a creative consultant between 2001 and 2005, after which he left. He re-joined the agency in 2007 and had been with it ever since. He has previously worked with agencies such as McCann, Saatchi & Saatchi (then Sista Saatchi & Saatchi), among others.
