The Dentsu Aegis Network has announced changes to WATConsult's leadership team. 
Heeru Dingra has been elevated as chief executive officer and will take over from Rajiv Dingra who has moved to an advisor and mentor role. 
Heeru is currently the CHRO and CFO and will continue to report to Dentsu Aegis Network India CEO, Anand Bhadkamkar. 
She said “I am truly honoured to lead WATConsult. I am looking forward to work closely with our exceptional senior leadership team, along with Rajiv, our chief mentor and advisor. Together, we will capture the next waves of growth for WATConsult by remaining laser-focused on serving our clients, delivering long term growth and value creation, and providing the best career experiences for our people.”
Bhadkamkar said, “Heeru has been an integral part of WATConsult's growth story. She has led the agency alongside Rajiv in the capacity of CFO and CHRO and has an intimate understanding of this business. She works very closely with the leadership team at the agency and across DAN and is uniquely positioned to take on the role of CEO at WATConsult. I am excited to have Heeru lead WATConsult on its next phase of growth alongside Rajiv, who now takes charge as the agency's chief mentor and advisor."
