Radhesh Uchil appointed GM-West & South of Carat India

Following the recent restructuring at Carat India, which saw PV Narayanmoorthy taking over as MD, Carat India has announced the appointment of Radhesh Uchil as General Manager (West & South). In this new position, Uchil will undertake the running of the Mumbai and southern operations of Carat.

Commenting on Uchil’s appointment, Narayanmoorthy said, “Radhesh brings with him rich experience in media, both within India and the Middle East. As the media world becomes increasingly global, Radhesh’s experience is ideal to partner Carat as it moves into the next phase of development. It is not only his experience, but his grit, determination and never-say-die attitude that makes me feel excited to have him on board as a senior colleague.”

Uchil has over 17 years’ experience covering markets as diverse as Saudi Arabia, Egypt, North Africa, Iraq, the Gulf markets and India. Prior to joining Carat, he was Senior Vice-President/COO with Bates PanGulf Group in Dubai and immediately before that, he was Media Director/Area Manager with Fortune Promseven/Universal Media 7, Dubai.

Richard Halmarick, CEO, Aegis Media Asia South (and acting CEO, Carat India) said, “Radhesh is a true professional with a positive attitude to face and overcome challenges. This is really refreshing in a market where most people are looking out for safe options.”

Uchil added, “Carat is a brand that has always fascinated me, being the only true media independent agency, and having built its reputation globally as a company that is media-driven. I look forward to furthering my learning process on the various tools and processes that are proprietary to this company. The company is in an aggressive mode in India at the moment, and that makes it an opportune time to be a part of their rise. I believe I will be able to positively contribute to the company's growth in India and it will be a mutually beneficial relationship.”
