Manjiri Kamat quits MEC India, heads back to Malaysia

After a two-year stint, Manjiri Kamat, General Manager for Mumbai and Bangalore operations at MEC India, has put in her papers. She is moving back to Malaysia.

T Gangadhar, Managing Director, MEC India, and Kamat have confirmed the development.

Stating the reason for quitting MEC India, Kamat said, “Currently, I will be taking a break and would want to spend time with my family in Malaysia. Two years back when I came back to India, my family had not come down with me then. Thus, I plan to go back to my family. However, I have still not decided on my next destination as I hope to take a break.”

Kamat came to India in May 2009 to head MEC India’s Mumbai and Bangalore operations. Prior to that she was leading the MEC operations in Malaysia for three years. As General Manager for Mumbai and Bangalore, Kamat handled clients like Nivea, HDFC, Standard Life Insurance, Citi, Pidilite, Tata AIG General Insurance, DHL, Singapore Airlines, Chanel, Novartis and Accenture.

She was tasked with managing business operations and growth for both offices, besides handling quality control, client relationships, spearheading new business development and ensuring delivery of the integrated MEC communications planning product.

At MEC Malaysia, Kamat had helped the company become among the top four agencies with a blue chip client list and nurtured a young, dynamic team. During her time working for WPP agencies in India and MEC in Malaysia, she had gained extensive experience and expertise across a range of clients, including: DeBeers, Kodak, Hutch, Tata Sky, Colgate, Mercedes-Benz, Sony Ericsson, Citi, Tesco, DHL and Singapore Airlines.

Emery says everything that Unilever CMO Keith Weed says has a touch of genius. He also talks about his expectations from Cannes, WPP without Sir Martin Sorrell and his love for Mindshare India.
