Aejaz Khan has joined TBWA\India as Executive Vice President and Head of its Mumbai operation. With 19 years of advertising behind him, Khan joins TBWA from Lowe Lintas, Bangalore, where he was Senior VP responsible for Tata Group brands such as Fastrack, Titan Sonata, Tanishq and Tata Tea.
Khan has previously held senior executive level positions at multinational agencies in India and abroad (North Africa and the Middle East). In those assignments, he has worked with brands like Vaseline, HSBC, Tata Sumo and Safari, Signal, BP, Rexona, Axe and Pepsi.
Khan said about his new role, “This is a fantastic new chapter in my career. TBWA is known for its great people who care about big ideas. The network has a deep creative culture with ‘Disruption’ at the core of its DNA. I’ll chase fame, fun and fortune for the agency and our brands.”
TBWA\India’s Managing Director, Nirmalya Sen, said, “Aejaz is a rich reservoir of experience and knowledge on Indian and global brands alike. This will be invaluable as he comes on board to lead an office that works with some large global brands on the one hand, and several Indian majors on the other.”
Sen added, “With Arindam Sengupta, who has admirably turned around our offices in the South over the last two and a half years; Subho Sengupta who came on board recently to head Delhi, and now Aejaz, we now have a very formidable branch leadership team. I look forward to working closely with them to take TBWA\India to its next level of growth.”
