JWT names South head Gangwani as head of Mumbai ops

JWT has named Rajesh Gangwani, head of South, as senior vice president and managing partner of its Mumbai office. The agency made the announcement in a statement issued on 4 August 2014.

The agency had announced the exit of Tarun Chauhan, managing partner, Mumbai, on 26 September 2013.

In other changes, Himanshu Saxena, president, JWT group companies, Colombo, will succeed Gangwani as SVP and managing partner, South.

Joy Chauhan, executive business director, JWT New Delhi, will take over from Saxena in Colombo.

Colvyn Harris, CEO - South Asia, JWT, said, “Rajesh and Himanshu are both dynamic leaders with strong connections to the markets, the consumers and the clients. By leveraging their strengths and strategic insights, JWT is uniquely positioned to maximise growth in these critical markets.”

On Joy’s move, Harris said, “He has managed large teams and big brands and that experience will hold him good stead. JWT Colombo is one of the most admired agencies in Sri Lanka and that will continue under Joy’s leadership,” he added.
