At the Annual General Body Meeting of the India Chapter of International Advertising Association (IAA) held in Mumbai, Srinivasan Swamy, Chairman of RK Swamy Hansa Group, was unanimously elected President for the third consecutive term. He already serves on the IAA Global Board as Vice-President – Development, IAA Asia Pacific.

Neeraj Roy of Hungama, Monica Tata of HBO and Jaideep Gandhi of Jaya Advertising were also re-elected Vice-President, Honorary Secretary and Treasurer, respectively, for 2014-15.

The other members elected to the Managing Committee are: Abhishek Karnani of The Free Press Journal, Vishakha Singh of Aurora Comms, Manish Advani of Mahindra SSG, Janak Sarda of Deshdoot, CVL Srinivas of GroupM, Avinash Pandey of ABP News, MV Shreyams Kumar of Mathrubhumi, Partho Dasgupta of BARC, Bhaskar Das of Zee Media and Rajesh Kejriwal of Kyoorius.

In addition, the following would serve in the committee as invited members for 2014-15: Pradeep Guha, Pheroza Bilimoria, Sam Balsara, Kaushik Roy, Raj Nayak, Ramesh Narayan, MG Parameswaran, Neville Taraporewalla, Gayatri Yadav, Anita Nayyar, Pradeep Dwivedi, Anand Sankeshwar, Sunil Lulla and Punitha Arumugam. “A few more have been invited and their names will be announced after they accept our invitation,” said Srinivasan Swamy.

In his outgoing President’s address, Srinivasan Swamy said that the past year was an active one, with 32 events being organised by IAA India. Some of these included two IAA Debates, four IAA Conversations, five IAA Mentorship Webinars, six Knowledge Seminars, three IAA Young Turks Forum events and other marquee events like the IAA Olive Crown Awards and the IAA Leadership Awards. There were a few other special ones like the IAA Retrospect & Prospects events in Gurgaon and Mumbai, and the IAA Mentorship Programme. The year was off to a terrific start on September 30, 2013 with the IAA Platinum Jubilee Global Marketing Summit where the then BJP Prime Ministerial candidate and CM of Gujarat, Narendra Modi, delivered a valedictory address on his vision of Brand India.

All members present at the AGM applauded Swamy for the good work and for his leadership over the past couple of years.

IAA India will be celebrating its Silver Jubilee in 2014-15. “We have identified at least 20 different platforms to peg our events for the coming year. We have a very good committee and I wouldn’t be surprised if we have more than 52 events during the year,” said Swamy.

Pradeep Guha, Area Director, IAA Asia Pacific, said, “IAA India is already seen as the most active industry body in India as well as in the IAA world. With the plans that are made for 2014-15, I have no doubt that this will be the best year ever and would set a new benchmark.”

Not wanting to elaborate as yet, Swamy said, “IAA will continue with some of its past branded events and add a few special ones for the year that would make the IAA India Silver Jubilee a memorable one.”
