Change in Leadership at Rediffusion-Y&R and Everest
Rediffusion Y & R has announced the elevation of Kavita Kailas as the new Chief Strategy Officer. Prithviraj Banerjee has been promoted as the Strategy Planning Head Everest Brand Solutions. This in addition to his current role.
Speaking on the development Dhunji S. Wadia, President, Rediffusion Y & R said: “For quite some time Gautam Talwar has been nurturing the idea of pursuing interests beyond advertising. And I think the time has come to allow him to follow his passions. So after a hard working stint Gautam is taking a well-deserved break before deciding what his next chapter should be. I thank him for all his help and support and wish him the very best in whatever he chooses to do."
And today, I am happy to announce 2 new changes:
Kavita Kailas gets promoted to Chief Strategy Officer and will continue to be the lighthouse resource for our clients and brands. She is meant for this role. For the last few years she has been heading the Strategic Planning Function across our Delhi, Kolkata and Southern operations. She has been exemplifying every day what it means to be a client's most valued partner. Kavita has a great love of our business, our clients and our people that infuses all that she does. Unleashing her enthusiasm and her expertise will make a real difference in how we serve our clients.
Prithviraj Banerjee – Strategy Planning Head, Everest. This would be in addition to his current responsibilities. Prithvi’s passion for our agency, his intellectual curiosity and integrity, along with his deep collaborative way of working will make a difference to our clients and to our agency.”
