The creative pitch for Dabur’s skin care brands has taken a new turn. Refuting Grey’s claim of retaining the business, Dabur India’s spokesperson stated, “Grey Worldwide was never invited for the pitch, so there’s no question of them bagging the account.”
Grey India is all charged up after the restructuring of sorts in the recent months. Hari Krishnan returned to the agency’s fold recently to head Mumbai. The agency is also upbeat about the two NCD structure in form of Malvika Mehra and Amit Akali. In an exclusive conversation with exchange4media, Jishnu Sen, COO, Grey India, shares his vision and growth plans of the agency in 2010.
It’s a homecoming of sorts for Hari Krishnan, who is back at Grey India as the VP & Branch Head, Grey Mumbai. The position had been left vacant for over a year now. Prior to this, Krishnan was with STAR India in the channel’s marketing division for a few months. Hari’s first innings at Grey started in 2007 when he joined to head Grey Bangalore. He is credited with building the branch successfully, retaining and consolidating clients and building a highly efficient team.
