Dentsu Webchutney, a digital agency from the Dentsu Aegis Network, has appointed Nishi Kant as EVP and Branch Head, Mumbai. Kant will lead the charge for the agency’s Mumbai office and will report to Sidharth Rao, CEO and Co-founder, Dentsu Webchutney.

This is Kant’s second stint at Webchutney; the first one lasting almost 10 years in 2014. In his new role, Kant will lead efforts across all brands such as HDFC, Reliance Retail, Redbull, KTM and Platinum Evara handled from the Mumbai office.

Speaking about his second innings, Kant said, “I grew up with Webchutney and have seen it evolve from a start-up into an institution. It was a refreshing break to go back to school and work with start-ups again, but now it’s time to come back home. I’m excited to lead a team that comprises some of the best advertising talent in the country.”

Commenting on the appointment, Rao said, “It’s fantastic to have Nishi back. I’m looking forward to his maverick outlook driving infectious ideas which resonate with the Webchutney culture, and in the process, steer dramatic business growth.”

During his two-year hiatus from Webchutney, Kant worked with a couple of start-ups in healthcare and e-commerce space, specialising in both strategy as well as design.
