Announcing the promotions, Nakul Chopra, CEO-South Asia, Publicis said, "Ani and Ashish have done an outstanding job over the past 2-3 years. They are clearly our leadership for the future. Publicis is the youngest global network in India - we are already in the top three in creative rankings - we are focused on being a top five agency. I have no doubt that Ani and Ashish will lead us to our ambition."

Banerjee started his career with Contract followed by an eight year stint with Clarion (Bates). Later at Leo Burnett he headed the Bajaj, P&G and Heinz teams, rising to executive director and Mumbai Head within four years. In 2004, he joined Everest as COO. He has been with Publicis since 2007 leveraging his considerable expertise across diverse categories.

"Ashish and I will certainly do our best to take up the challenge and take Publicis to its rightful place," said Banerjee.

Ashish Khazanchi has worn many hats in his career – engineer, B-school graduate, suit and entrepreneur – till he found his real calling in life, writing.
His work has featured in The One Show, Archives, The Work, Shots and Luerzer’s Archives. He has been a consistent winner at Indian award shows as well with over two dozen wins to his credit.

Khazanchi said, "We are working together to create Publicis 2.0. And some of our efforts are already bearing fruit."
