Cheil Worldwide SW Asia has appointed Avinash Joshi as media director and head of the agency's social media practice.
Joshi joins the agency from SapientNitro where he was digital account director and social media lead, India.
Hari Krishnan, COO, Cheil Worldwide, SW Asia, said, “Avinash is an incredibly passionate yet methodical advocate of social media. His multi-faceted experience across project management, creative, technology and media will be immensely valuable for our clients at Cheil India.”
Rajesh Bhatia, SVP and head digital, Cheil Worldwide, SW Asia, said, "While most of the digital verticals are headed by seasoned skill leaders at Cheil India, social media leadership had remained a gap area for us. With Avinash coming onboard, am sure, we will not just offer best in class social solutions but strengthen our overall digital offering to clients."
