Dentsu Aegis Network India has elevated Deven Dharamdasani to the role of CEO, SVG Media.
Dharamdasani was previously COO at the agency. This follows the demise of Anurag Gupta, former CEO - SVG Media, in July this year.
Additionally, Nitin Sabharwal, former chief business officer – SVG Columbus, has been elevated as COO.
Dharamdasani said, “Nobody can fill in the void that Anurag has left behind. However, we will put in all our efforts and see to it that Anurag’s vision for SVG Media is met with.”
Sabharwal said, “I will continue to spearhead Columbus India and be responsible for driving growth and operations across its advertisers.”
Ashish Bhasin, CEO, greater South, Dentsu Aegis Network and chairman and CEO, India, said, “Anurag’s passing is a deep and a shocking loss for SVG, for DAN and for the entire Digital fraternity. Deven, Chirag, Ashwani and Nitin are integral to SVG and they understand and resonate with Anurag’s vision for the agency. I wish them all the luck and look forward to SVG’s growth under their vigilant leadership.”
