Atin Wahal joins BBDO as EVP
BBDO India has announced the appointment of Atin Wahal as executive vice president for its Mumbai office. Wahal moves from Publicis India where he was SVP. 
 
Jean-Paul Burge, chairman and CEO, BBDO Asia, said, “This is a key role in a key market for a key office. India and BBDO India are booming and I have no doubt Atin will make a great success of taking our Mumbai office to greater heights. We have a fantastic team there and a tremendous culture which I am certain he will bring an exciting new dimension to.”
 
Wahal said, "I have always considered myself being in the business of storytelling for brands and I am thrilled to be a part of the team who is the best in the business not only in India but the world. What got my attention when meeting Josy, Ajai and JP is how simplistic but thorough the approach is towards their brands which lends itself to the philosophy of ‘acts, not ads’. In last 10 years, BBDO India has been the most effective and creative agency in the world and I look forward to making the agency and its clients shine even brighter." 
 
Josy Paul, chairman and chief creative officer, BBDO India, added,“Atin is a hands-on advertising and brand management champion with a strong business acumen. He is a believer and partitioner of our ‘Acts Not Ads’ mantra and a keen follower of social movements led by brands –including our work on Gillette, Ariel, Whisper, Mirinda, Quaker, Visa, SC Johnsons, All Out and Aviva Life Insurance. We are thrilled to have him on our side. Spiritually, he is already one of us."
 
Wahal has also had stints with Leo Burnett and Sony Entertainment Television.
