Deepak Jolly gets new role; Ishteyaque Amjad takes over Coca-Cola comms
Coca-Cola India has announced a change in leadership of its communications team. Deepak Jolly, currently vice president, public affairs and communication, has been given the responsibility of setting up a new function within the company. Jolly will continue reporting to Venkatesh Kini, president, Coca Cola India and South West Asia. His new mandate begins on 1 November 2015. Over a career spanning more than three decades, he has also worked with Hindustan Unilever, PepsiCo, Godfrey Philips and Bharti Airtel. 
Ishteyaque Amjad will take over Jolly's mandate. He joined the company on 1 September 2015. Prior to this he was director corporate affairs for Cargill, based in Singapore. He has also worked with HCL Enterprises, Essar Group and served the Indian Army. 
Kini said, “Deepak has accepted the responsibility to lead the premium and niche segment in the franchise bottling territories. In many ways, he is returning to where he started his career from – the operations and sales role in a large FMCG company. I wish him the very best as he takes up a very challenging new assignment. I also welcome Ishteyaque Amjad to the Coca-Cola family. He has solid credentials and will make a great addition to our leadership team.”
