J. Walter Thompson re-designates Tarun Rai as the Chairman & Group CEO of J. Walter Thompson South Asia.
Tamara Ingram, Global CEO, J. Walter Thompson said, “Tarun’s new title accurately reflects his responsibilities. He oversees multiple countries with full-service agencies and digital companies including specialised divisions such as Shopper, Rural, Events, Design, Production and Social. Over the last three years, Tarun has ensured that all of these companies and divisions are integrated seamlessly to deliver the best communication solutions to our clients.”
Commenting on the news, Tarun Rai, Chairman & Group CEO, J Walter Thompson South Asia said, “Our clients are increasingly asking for integrating their brand communication across various touch points and platforms. What puts the JWT group at an advantage is that we have many specialised companies and divisions in the group but a single P&L. This makes us platform agnostic and allows us to focus on only the client and brand communication needs. I am lucky to have extremely talented and capable leaders of our various group companies, divisions and functions.”
J Walter Thompson Group in South Asia includes India, Sri Lanka and Nepal. It has three mainline agencies – J Walter Thompson, Contract and ADK Fortune; 2 digital agencies - Mirum and Hungama Digital Services; Design - Design Sutra; Shopper marketing, events and experiential marketing agency - Geometry Global Encompass India.
