Samir Gangahar to join Leo Burnett Delhi as Executive Director

Samir Gangahar is joining Leo Burnett Delhi as Executive Director. He moves from JWT, where he had a long stint of nearly 17 years. In his new role, Gangahar will be heading the Delhi operations of the agency.

Confirming the appointment, Arvind Sharma, Chairman and CEO, Leo Burnett, explained that Delhi already had two units under B Sreekumar and L Priyadarshini, who headed the Delhi business. He said that in six weeks’ time he would bring on board a third business head, which would complete the Delhi set-up. All the business unit heads would be under Gangahar.

Gangahar began his career as a trainee with JWT Kolkata and subsequently moved to the Delhi branch. Since then, he has been involved with the agency at various levels. Currently, he is the VP and Client Services Director at the agency.
