JWT has brought in Anitha Krishnan as executive business director. Prior to this, Krishnan was leading Contract's Bengaluru office as VP.
On her new role, Krishnan said, “JWT is a much larger playing field and I am looking forward to the challenges and opportunities that come with that kind of scale. What makes this move exciting is the diversity that JWT offers, be it the kind of brands, the people, platforms and the opportunity to present a truly integrated business solution.”
Krishnan spent close to a decade with Contract with stints in Mumbai and Bengaluru. In a career spanning 16 years, she has also worked with Bates.
In November 2013, Contract announced that Monojit Ray had been appointed general manager and vice president of Contract Bengaluru, taking over from Krishnan.
