Lowe and Partners Worldwide has announced the appointment of Hari Krishnan as CEO of Lowe LDB Sri Lanka. Krishnan will report to Joseph George, CEO of Lowe Lintas + Partners, India.
Krishnan joins the agency from Grey where he was the senior vice president and business head for South. This is Krishnan's second stint with Lowe. He has previously worked with Lowe India until 2007. He has also worked with Star TV.
George said, “It’s good to have Hari back into our fold after all these years. Having learned the nitty-gritty of the business since his formative days at Lowe coupled with his vast exposure across other agencies in senior roles, Hari Krishnan is perfectly placed to lead the agency in Sri Lanka. Over the last five years, Sri Lanka has seen high GDP growths and the country is at an exciting inflection point now.”
Krishnan said, “I started my career with Lintas in India in ’96-97 and learnt my fundamentals from the great university of knowledge that is Lowe Lintas. So I’m extremely happy and thrilled to be back. It’s a homecoming of sorts in that sense. It’s an honour and a challenge to lead such an operation and I’m really looking forward to partnering the young, talented team there in driving the philosophy of ‘Populist Creativity’ and taking Lowe LDB to greater heights.”
