Dentsu Webchutney appoints Avinash Joshi as VP and head, social advocacy
Dentsu Webchutney, the digital agency from Dentsu Aegis Network, has appointed Avinash Joshi as VP and head of social advocacy.
 
He will report to Anil Kumar, EVP and head- Delhi NCR, Dentsu Webchutney.
 
In a career spanning 18 years, Joshi has worked with Reliance Jio, Cheil, SapientNitro and the United Nations. His last stint was at Reliance Jio where he was AVP and head of social. 
 
Joshi said, “Social has fundamentally changed the consumer decision process and purchase path. Today, consumers have access to an exponentially growing number of opinions, tastes, and preferences via social connections."
 
He adds, "The days of strictly controlled brand messaging are long gone and without a clearly defined purchase path, word of mouth marketing (WOMM) has become more critical than ever. As marketers, we know that it’s virtually impossible to duplicate the level of credibility that comes with a personal endorsement from a friend. Personally, I’m on an adventure—uncovering what people are thinking, feeling and doing—with a mission to connect brands with consumers in more meaningful ways.”
 
Anil Kumar, EVP and head- Delhi NCR, Dentsu Webchutney said, “Today, a brand enjoys the option of being more human than it could earlier. It’s no longer just about fans, but also friends. With Avinash joining us, we can now enable the brands that we partner, to harness the complete power of social media and their communities."
