Harish Shriyan promoted from COO to CEO of Omnicom Media Group, India

Following the substantial growth for its agencies in the Indian market, Omnicom Media Group India has strengthened its local leadership by promoting Harish Shriyan to the role of Chief Executive Officer. Shriyan will now oversee the performance of the group’s four offices in the country, as well as drive its further expansion across the country to accommodate the demands of new growth.

Having been with the group since its establishment in India in 2007 and serving as Chief Operating Officer since 2013, Shriyan has developed an unrivalled understanding of its agencies’ niche offerings amidst a highly competitive marketplace. In this new capacity, Shriyan will work closely with the leadership of OMD and PHD, namely Priti Murthy and Jyoti Bansal respectively, fueling the agencies’ continued growth, driving digital transformation and innovation for its clients, and delivering exceptional performance in the Indian market.

“Over the past decade, Harish has played an integral role in establishing Omnicom Media Group’s presence in the Indian market,” commented Torie Henderson, CEO of Omnicom Media Group – South East Asia and India. “This promotion is a testament to his hard work and dedication over the years, as well as the respect and trust he has earned from our staff, clients and partners. He has a clear mandate to drive innovation, digital transformation and performance for our clients and I am delighted that he has risen to this challenge.”

“Having been with the group for just over a decade, the agencies and its people have become like family and I can’t think of a better place or team to be a part of,” added Shriyan. “I am excited to take on this new challenge and work closely with our talented management team on the next chapter for our agencies, especially at a time when the media and marketing landscape is transforming so rapidly and profoundly. There has never been a more exciting time to work in the industry, with emerging opportunities allowing us to make an even bigger impact for our clients’ brands. I look forward to raising the bar even further for our agencies, our people and our clients.”
