Arvind Krishnan returns to BBH India, as MD

Publicis Groupe agency BBH India has announced the return of Arvind Krishnan to its fold, as managing director.

Arvind moves back after a stint at BBH London as team director, managing a portfolio that included Unilever and Diageo brands. Before his move to London in January 2012, he was brand partner at BBH India.

He will be part of the core team at the agency which includes Subhash Kamath, CEO and managing partner; Russell Barrett, CCO and managing partner; Sanjay Sharma, head of planning; Puneet Kapoor, ECD; and Rishit Mehta, finance director. Krishnan will report to Kamath, informed an agency statement.

Kamath said, “Russell and I are delighted that Arvind will be returning to us. He was one of our first recruits at BBH India and has been an outstanding star in the company. He brings a huge amount of drive and passion to the team here, combined with the valuable experience he’s gained during his tenure at BBH London. We have no doubt that both our people and our clients will benefit greatly from his leadership.”

Gwyn Jones, global CEO, BBH, added, “Arvind has done an excellent job for the agency and its clients in Mumbai and London. It is great for us to be able to grow management from within and also develop talent for the future by moving from office to office like this.”

“It's great to be back. It's been a fantastic experience working on global brands and helping them navigate through different markets. It has taught me the value of simplicity. Simplicity, that allows ideas to stretch and flex across geographies. The opportunity to apply this and create market-moving work at home is exciting and I’m thrilled at the prospect of working with the team in Mumbai again,” said Krishnan.
