Shubha George made COO of MEC South Asia

Mediaedge:cia India has strengthened its regional structure with the elevation of Shubha George as Chief Operating Officer of MEC South Asia. The promotion is effective immediately. T Gangadhar, who had joined the company as Managing Director, MEC India, in 2008, will continue to report to George.

I am very excited to be taking on this wider business role and look forward to being able to import and export ideas within India and across the region. It’s an exciting time to be working on the integration of our business at all levels. I have great confidence that Gangadhar and the rest of the management team will take MEC India to even greater heights, and I will do everything I can to support them all the way.”
