Geometry Encompass, the experiential marketing and brand activation agency, a part of WPP, has recently appointed Rahul Karwa as Chief Operating Officer (COO), West. He will operate from Mumbai office.
In the past, he worked with the agency in the capacity of Managing Partner. During his last assignment at Geometry Encompass, he took up the responsibility of setting up a new-age activation agency called Engage at Encompass. Within the short span of one year, Engage became the fastest growing strategic business unit within the Geometry Global Encompass Network (GGNE) and soon after, established Encompass as a leading Activation Specialist for clients.
With over 19 years of experience, Karwa has worked with numerous companies and media agencies. Before rejoining Geometry Encompass, he headed The Bucketlist, a full-service experiential marketing agency, as the Chief Executive Officer. In his previous stints, he has worked as a specialist Rural Marketer at Ogilvy Action, as Brand Head at DDB MudraMax (Experiential Marketing, West) and Senior Vice-President at WPP. He also worked as Planner at Reliance Capital (2007-2008).
Karwa said, “I am happy to be able to come back to Geometry Encompass, in many ways it’s almost like coming back home. In my new role, I hope to support the agency in its growth journey and to drive operational excellence across the portfolio of services. I look forward to leading this team of innovative disruptors.”
Roshan Abbas, Founder and Managing Director, Geometry Encompass, said, “In our attempt to build the agency of the future, we are always on the search for new talent and sometimes we find people who have been on a journey with us before. Rahul has delivered exceptional results in the past while leading Engage. Now that he has rejoined us in this journey, I believe we are now stronger than ever. I welcome him aboard.”
