Raj Gupta, CEO, Lowe Lintas has stepped down from his position after a 28-year-long association with the Group, exchange4media has learnt.
Gupta was elevated as CEO in April 2017. He has held leadership positions in the company across Media, Digital, Strategic Planning, Channel Planning, Business Development and Account Management.
Speaking about his retirement and close to a three-decade long career at Lowe Lintas, Gupta says, “It was as an honour to have started my career at Lintas and now to have retired from there too. It was a privilege to have served as CEO of this great institution. There is a reason for having spent so many years at Lintas, someone is always coming through here with a new adventure, a new discovery, a new idea. It made me fall in love with communications over and over again. Life is about the people you meet and the things you create with them, I met and worked with many inspiring colleagues who then turned either into mentors or friends. Love you all, love you Lintas so much and I am so proud to have been part of you.”
Talking about Gupta’s contribution to Lintas and the various milestones he has achieved, Amer Jaleel, Group CCO and Chairman, MullenLowe Lintas Group says, “Raj Gupta ended a long and illustrious career where he played multiple roles and of course ended up being CEO of Lowe Lintas. While a lot is known about Raj and his fantastic contributions to the agency and the industry, there's something he did that is not known at all, and this actually speaks for what Lintas meant to Raj and how forward-facing Raj has been as a professional. Over the last one year of his association with us Raj actually proposed, designed, and activated what is possibly the most integrated and comprehensive Digital Education Program that the industry has seen. As a direct result of Raj's hand in this and because of the role he played in bringing the Lintas Trust's contribution to educating and upgrading the entire Lintas talent force, we are today stronger and a more contemporary strategy and communications company and not just an agency. Hats off to you Raj, thank you!”
While his successor has not been named officially, a few months ago Naveen Gaur who was overseeing the North, East and South regions for the agency as its Chief Operating Officer was elevated to the position of Deputy CEO at Lowe Lintas. The post of the CEO remains vacant as of now.For more updates, be socially connected with us on
