DDB India has strengthened its Planning team by hiring Mitali Srivastava as Associate Vice President ā€“ Strategy and Planning. Mitali joins DDB India from Ogilvy & Mather. She will be handling a range of the agencyā€™s most important clients, as well as overseeing training.

On joining DDB India, Mitali said, ā€œI have always been a great admirer of not just the brands that DDB has built across the world, but also the DDB brand itself. The function of planning in advertising began at DDB, after all. So when the opportunity came my way, I couldn't resist it.ā€

On this new appointment, Mike Follett, Head of Planning, DDB India, said ā€œWeā€™re really excited to have a planner of the calibre of Mitali.
