Leo Burnett India has brought on board Hitesh Mehta as Vice President to be based at their Head Office in Mumbai. Mehta will be leading the McDonald’s business nationally on both account management and strategy.
Speaking on the appointment, Saurabh Varma, CEO, Leo Burnett India said, “With over a decade of integrated communications experience, Hitesh is extremely passionate about understanding human behaviour and applying those valuable insights to client work. It is this very orientation that is of great value to our strong HumanKind philosophy for our brands.”
Mehta added here, “The QSR market is still quite nascent and there is immense scope for growth. It’s a very exciting time for McDonalds and I am relishing the opportunity.”
Over the years, Mehta has worked in differing local, regional and global roles on some of the world’s biggest brands based out of India, Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore and Indonesia. His last assignment was with Leo Burnett in Indonesia, wherein he was a part of the agency leadership team, successfully delivering on his mandate to partner the marketing teams at Dutch Lady and McDonalds, in pursuit of achieving their growth ambitions within the Indonesian market. He relocated back to India in 2013 and has been working as an independent brand consultant prior to joining Leo Burnett earlier this month.For more updates, subscribe to exchange4media's WhatsApp Channel- https://bit.ly/2QUdLCK
