Corporate Voice | Weber Shandwick has announced the expansion of its India leadership. The PR agency has elevated Atul Ahluwalia (pictured, left) to the role of president and Dilip Yadav (pictured, right) to the role of executive vice president. The duo, alongwith Shiv Reddy, CEO India, will form the national leadership. Furthermore, the agency has also promoted Pradeep Wadhwa as general manager for the Delhi office.
Commenting on the appointments, Reddy said, “Over the years, our agency has grown rapidly and has become a centre of excellence and globally acknowledged award winning work in public relations. As business leaders at our largest operation in Delhi, both Atul and Dilip have made an immense contribution to this success, Atul with his great traction in leading new business pitches and passionate involvement with key clients, and, Dilip with his rather uncommon ability to intertwine strategic and tactical prowess.”
Commenting about the development, Ahluwalia said, “My endeavour would be to extend Weber Shandwick’s novel advocacy approach for the benefit of our clients nationally and introduce an expanded suite of services and grow our network in India.”
Added Yadav, “The discipline of public relations is going through an exciting phase with rapidly evolving media dynamics. This requires new thinking and new solutions. In my new role, I am looking forward to blend our legacy knowledge with new thinking to offer in-line communication solutions to our clients that cut across platforms and networks”.
