Vishal Chinchankar to head digital at MEC India

MEC India has announced the appointment of Vishal Chinchankar as digital leader - India. Prior to joining MEC, he was heading Prodigi, WPP’s digital production business. Based in Mumbai, Chinchankar will report to T Gangadhar, managing director, MEC India and Tushar Vyas, head of GroupM Interaction, South Asia.

On the new hire, Gangadhar said, "Vishal is a heavy hitter in the digital arena and we are very happy to have him helming one of our biggest priorities. In an increasingly connected world, we are trying to move digital closer to the center of the plate. I am sure Vishal’s rich experience will come handy."     

Chinchankar has over 15 years of experience in digital marketing. Prior to Prodigi, Chinchankar had stints at Reliance Group and at Mindshare Interaction (Singapore), where he was responsible for regional accounts including Nike and Samsung.
