BestMediaInfo Bureau | Delhi | October 8, 2012
Starcom MediaVest Group has announced a few senior management changes in Delhi. Three senior executives – Tarun Nigam, Sulina Menon and Sriram Sharma – have been given new roles as part of the restructuring. The changes are in line with SMG’s philosophy of providing its senior executives newer opportunities to grow from time to time.
Nigam, Executive Director, Starcom North, is moving to a role with VivaKi Exchange by Januray 2013. In the last six years with the organisation, he has handled critical roles like Delhi Head and National Director, Business Impact for SMG India. He is currently in the process of transitioning from the SMG role to a full-time role with group outfit VivaKi. In his new role, Nigam will report to VivaKi Exchange CEO Mona Jain.
Menon, Executive Director and Head of Team Samsung and Dabur, will be taking charge of Nigam’s client portfolio in Delhi, in addition to overseeing the Dabur account. She has been instrumental in scaling up Starcom’s services on Samsung over the last couple of years. This year the agency won numerous awards for outstanding work on Samsung.
Sharma, VP, Starcom South, is moving to Delhi to Head Team Samsung. Sharma has played a key role in developing Starcom Bangalore and Chennai. There would be a three-month overlap between Menon and Sriram on Samsung before they take independent charge of their roles in Januray 2013. In their new roles both Menon and Sriram will report to SMG India CEO Malli CR.
Malli said on the changes, “After a good run in the last two years, we are gearing up for an even more action-packed future. Tarun, Sulina and Sriram have done exceedingly well in their respective assignments and have been great ambassadors of SMG. Their new roles with enlarged responsibilities are a testament to their performance. We wish them the very best in their new assignments.”
