Ameer Ismail has been promoted to the position of president at GolinOpinion. He was executive director of the PR agency under the MullenLowe Lintas Group previously.
In his new role he will continue to report to Vikas Mehta, group CMO and president, marketing services for the group.
Mehta said, “Ameer is just the right mix of vintage and vision. In a time when the practice of PR is more important than ever, but the business of PR is getting highly commoditised; he’s the kind of leader the industry needs. PR is an integral part of our re-bundled offering and GolinOpinion occupies a great position in the market today. Reinventing yourself from a position of strength is a rare and valuable opportunity and I’m delighted to have Ameer lead that agenda for us.”
Ismail said, “I am so proud to be a part of this great institution - the MullenLoweLintas Group and am looking forward to this new phase in my journey with a renewed focus and dedication towards delivering great work. GolinOpinion is recognized as a premium and leading player in the PR industry. We have today some of the best brands represented in our portfolio. As the business evolves, I am tasked to work closely with our management team to take GolinOpinion to even greater heights by building scale and new competencies that will continue the brave work that has been our trademark so far.”
Ismail has spent more than 20 years with the agency that was formerly known as LinOpinion.
