Krishna Mani joins Dentsu as ECD-South

Krishna Mani joins Dentsu as ECD-South
Dentsu India has announced the appointment of Krishna Mani as ECD-South. He moves from Ogilvy where he was group creative director at its Delhi office. 
 
Mani will be based in Bengaluru and will report to Malvika Mehra, CCO, Dentsu India. 
 
Mehra said, “Good work is mostly the outcome of happy accidents - good clients colliding with good talent. Add a new location to the mix and one usually lands a winning combo. I’m glad to have managed to lure Krishna from 'saddi Dilli' to 'namma Bengaluru'. Krishna has done some amazing work in the past and with the exciting roster of clients in our offices across South - Bangalore, Chennai and Cochin, I am really looking forward to us creating some magical, new-age work together. With my time divided between the Mumbai and South offices, I can see many delightful evenings spent on the lawns of the Bangalore Club with our teams, cracking ideas that make our clients and Dentsu India famous.”
 
Mani said, “When you have been in one place for 16 odd years, it’s not easy to leave. A nudge just doesn’t do, you need something way more exciting, more magnetic. That was what Malvika’s call for Dentsu India was for me. When she said there was a great opportunity to create something new, build something special, I was tempted."
 
He added, "When she said it’s about leading the agency in the south markets, I was very interested. (Especially now when regional insights are becoming more and more important). When she said the clients are a mix of strong brands and bubbling start-ups, I was finally hooked. Add to this the support of the huge Dentsu Aegis Network; and yes, the weather of Bangalore. I was totally onboard. I have always had a vision of creating media agnostic communication, and today there’s no better place to begin doing that than Dentsu India Bangalore.”
