The Digital Street has appointed Siddhant Mazumdar as its new Chief Operating Officer. Mazumdar will work closely with Shrikant Menon, CEO and Managing Partner, to accelerate and drive the agency’s growth strategy and continued operational expansion plans.
In his new role, he will be charged with leading the strategy operations and will be instrumental in driving business development, creating new opportunities and experiences for the vertical as well The Digital Street’s clients across the board.
Menon said, “Sid brings with him a wealth of experience in the digital domain with both strategic thinking and operational excellence. Our shared belief in delivering platform agnostic communication solutions is at the centre of why The Digital Street exists as a partner to our clients. It is a sign of great intent and ambition for The Digital Street and I’m excited to have him on board.”
Mazumdar said, “I’m excited to join The Digital Street as this is a remarkably forward thinking agency that is built on a model worthy of the times we are in. Agencies can no longer afford to work in silos locked down by a single medium and in order to crack a winning campaign, we need to be able to produce for every touchpoint while keeping digital at the centre. This is why I feel I couldn’t have joined at a better time in the agency’s history as today The Digital Street has the ability to go beyond just pure play digital and also deliver everything from short/long format content to experiences, innovations to OOH — all under one roof!”
In a career spanning multiple departments at agencies and platforms, Mazumdar led operations on both sides of the business — creative and revenue. After starting off in OgilvyOne in 2007 as a copywriter, Mazumdar went on to serve as National Creative Director at Interactive Avenues, where he was responsible for shaping the creative product and run operations nationally. After spending more than a decade on the creative side, he moved to the business side at Vice media as the Sales Director, overseeing all branded content and events sales for Vice in India.
