Ogilvy India has announced that effective July 1, Tithi Ghosh has taken over as President and Head of Office–Ogilvy Bengaluru. She takes over from Ram Moorthi, who after 25 years with Ogilvy India has decided to move on.
Ghosh brings with her over twenty-two years of experience in brand communication. She has an honours degree in Economics from St Xavier’s College Kolkata and completed her Master’s at MICA. She joined Ogilvy in Bengaluru in 2004.
Ghosh has had her hand in all the successes and wins that the office has had in the last two decades. She has created some fantastic work across brands like ITC Bingo, Titan, Allen Solly, The Hindu, Fortune and MTR. She has also nurtured and built some of the strongest client partnerships for Ogilvy Bengaluru.
In her role as Managing Partner, Bengaluru, during the pandemic years, she was instrumental in stabilising the business despite the pressures and was a pillar of strength to all employees.
Meanwhile Moorthi’s contribution to Ogilvy India, since 1997, has been immense across the Ogilvy India network. In the last two and half decades Moorthi has been in leadership roles that included heading the Chennai office, leading the IBM hub, heading Ogilvy’s PR function, leading the Mumbai office, to becoming the Bengaluru office head.
VR Rajesh, Group President, Ogilvy India, said, “We would like to thank Ram, for giving so much to Ogilvy India. We will miss his passion to always do something different. Not a man to sit on his laurels, we are sure an all-new venture is right around the corner. We wish him all the best and lots of love.”
“We are also very lucky to have Tithi to take the baton from Ram. Tithi stands for everything that represents the culture of Ogilvy. The voice of guidance and wisdom is now going to be the hand that guides the next chapter of Ogilvy Bengaluru.”
Ghosh said, “In my eighteen years in Ogilvy Bengaluru, I've had the good fortune of being part of teams that launched brands that today have grown to be some of India's most loved. To gain the same love and attention from digitally consummate and socially active consumers of today, requires fresh and new ways of thinking. Our team here has some incredible talent, folks who are passionate about what they do and create. I'm excited about the future as I believe we can partner our existing and prospective clients in changing the conversation around their brands.”
Piyush Pandey, Chairman Global Creative and Executive Chairman India, Ogilvy, said, “Tithi has been my valuable partner for years. And I am sure that in the coming years she will further strengthen our client relationships and creative excellence in our Bengaluru office.”
