Marketing communications company J. Walter Thompson has re-designated Tarun Rai as the Chairman and Group CEO of J. Walter Thompson South Asia.
Tamara Ingram, Global CEO, J. Walter Thompson, said, “Tarun’s new title accurately reflects his responsibilities. He oversees multiple countries with full-service agencies and digital companies, including specialised divisions such as shopper, rural, events, design, production and social. Over the last three years, Tarun has ensured that all of these companies and divisions are integrated seamlessly to deliver the best communication solutions to our clients.”
“Our clients are increasingly asking for integrating their brand communication across various touchpoints and platforms. What puts the JWT group at an advantage is that we have many specialised companies and divisions in the group but a single P&L. This makes us platform agnostic and allows us to focus on only the client and brand communication needs. I am lucky to have extremely talented and capable leaders of our various group companies, divisions and functions,” said Tarun Rai, Chairman and Group CEO, J Walter Thompson South Asia.
J Walter Thompson Group in South Asia includes India, Sri Lanka and Nepal.
