Waggener Edstrom India makes key hires

Waggener Edstrom Worldwide has announced the addition of two senior hires in India to support its continued growth across the country. The Integrated communications agency had entered India with its first office in Mumbai almost two years ago, followed by an expansion into Bengaluru and Delhi in 2011.

Bhuvnesh Chawla joins the team as General Manager, North India and Country Client Services Director. In his role, Chawla is responsible for expanding and strengthening Waggener Edstrom India’s presence in North India. As Country Client Services Director, he will work with clients to drive strategies that will achieve positive business impact and successfully influence their target audiences. He will also be responsible for customising the agency’s global proprietary Integrated Influence model of consulting to the Indian market.

The agency also appointed Kim Pinto as Account Director, based in Mumbai. She will oversee and manage a portfolio of technology and corporate clients.

“Bhuvnesh and Kim’s appointments are important steps towards building a strong India leadership team in realising our aspirations to becoming the market innovator and leader in Integrated Influence. This seamlessly blends traditional forms of Public Relations with earned, shared and owned digital platforms and tools that enable deeper audience immersion, improved targeting and ROI alignment,” said Madhuri Sen, Managing Director India, Waggener Edstrom Worldwide.

Bhuvnesh has almost two decades of communications experience. Most recently, he worked with Ogilvy Public Relations and was tasked with building and managing its Public Affairs practice. Kim joins from Blue Lotus Communications where she was Group Account Director, driving PR campaigns for DHL Express across India.
