Commenting on the appointment, Joseph George said, “It’s good to have Hari back into our fold after all these years. Having learnt the nitty-gritty of the business since his formative days at Lowe, coupled with his vast exposure across other agencies in senior roles, Hari is perfectly placed to lead the agency in Sri Lanka. Over the last five years, Sri Lanka has seen high GDP growths and the country is at an exciting inflection point now.”

Sharing his views on making a return to the agency, Krishnan said, “I started my career with Lintas in India in 1996-97 and learnt my fundamentals from the great university of knowledge that is Lowe Lintas. So, I’m extremely happy and thrilled to be back. It’s a homecoming of sorts in that sense. It’s an honour and a challenge to lead such an operation and I’m really looking forward to partnering the young, talented team there in driving the philosophy of ‘Populist Creativity’ and taking Lowe LDB to greater heights.”

Krishnan has almost two decades of work experience; nearly all of it in advertising, besides a stint as Vice President, Marketing with Star TV.
