Indrani Sen, Head of Mindshare Kolkata, decides to quit

Indrani Sen, General Manager & Head of Mindshare-Kolkata, is set to quit next month after a long stint with the company. Chirantan Chandran, currently part of JWT Client Servicing in Kolkata, who had initially begun his career in media, is slated to take over from her.

Confirming this development, Vikram Sakhuja, Managing Director, MindShare, said, “After an amazing innings Indrani is moving on to other pursuits. The experience, skills and stewardship that she has brought not only to our office but the Kolkata media industry as such has been phenomenal.”

Indeed for many years now Sen has represented the face of media in Kolkata. A versatile advertising person, she has been the voice of the industry on almost all major issues, an enlightening speaker in many a relevant forum and of course a respected mentor to a whole generation of ad professionals.

A graduate in Economics from Presidency College Kolkata and Masters in Applied Economics, she began her career in the early seventies in market and media research with IMRB and then moved to Clarion in Kolkata. From the mid-seventies onwards she spent a decade in Mumbai in media planning with agencies like Inter Publicity, Ulka and Contract, working her way up to be a Media Director.

Sen returned to Kolkata in the mid-eighties to take up the challenging assignment of setting up Ram Ray’s agency Response in a general management role as Commercial Director, before joining HTA in 1988.

“Having spent so many years in this business, I really don’t have any fresh challenges to look forward to. May be now is the time to look at life beyond media and advertising,” said Sen, who also happens to be an avid Ganesh idol collector. She even has a book to her credit on the origins of the Elephant God, and is also a self-taught painter. “For the moment I am looking forward to the second exhibition of my collage paintings in July,” she added.
