Commenting on the change, Ashish Bhasin, chairman India and CEO South East Asia, Aegis Media said, “We are delighted to have Anupriya on board. Her extensive experience in media will help enormously in continuing to grow the Singapore office and build on the success of our existing clients. Simultaneously, after doing a good job as the Singapore CEO, we need Arun to help us further strengthen our digital and search offering in the region and in key markets such as China.”

”I am looking forward to growing Aegis Media Singapore both in scale and in quality. We have some of the best clients in the country like Nokia, OCBC, Tourism Australia and many others so it makes my challenge very interesting,” said Acharya.

Anupriya Acharya’s last stint was with TME as its president and had quit the agency in August last year. Prior to TME, she was with GroupM where she set up mConsult – GroupM’s marketing communications consulting venture. Over the years, she has worked across a diverse set of clients such as Unilever, Colgate, Citibank, Indian Oils, Nestle and Reckitt Benckiser, amongst others.
