Bipin Pandit elevated as COO of The Advertising Club

Bipin Pandit, who was the general manager at the Advertising Club Bombay, has been promoted as the chief operating officer for the rechristened club which recently announced its plans to go national. The announcement was made at the first managing committee meeting for the Advertising Club held immediately after the AGM on 26 September, 2012.     

Commenting on the appointment, Shashi Sinha, president, the Advertising Club, said, "The reason we promoted him is that as the ambit of the club goes national, we will need a lot more of his perspectives, and especially when we are hosting events in other cities. Moreover, as we go national, we need someone to handle resource mobilisation, which he is good at."    

On his elevation, Pandit added, "When I had joined the Ad Club, it was a club with one major event and some evening meetings. Today we have three major events, educational workshops and many other activities. I have always loved challenges and with this elevation, there will be many in store. Ad Club has to be seen more on the national front. It has always had a great strength as a content provider; one look at the stalwarts on the mancom and you will come to know why I am saying so. It is also a desire to make Ad Club extremely sound on the financial front."

Pandit had joined the Ad Club in 1998 as an executive secretary to the manager, and has held several responsibilities during his tenure with the club.
