Starcom India's group CEO Mallikarjun Das has decided to move on from the organisation. Das had joined the agency in 2011 as CEO.
The agency statement revealed that a 'new leadership' will soon be announced.
Das said, “Working at Starcom over the last seven years has been a peak experience – it has left an indelible impression on me and shaped me as a professional and individual. Wisdom of hindsight is a dangerous thing, but I count myself lucky to have had large, complex business challenges come my way in this stint. I have had the full support of my team, Anupriya and my previous bosses in facing up to these challenges. Our results speak for themselves – Starcom India has grown four times the last four years; our India operations ended 2017 as Starcom’s global office of the year. I wish everyone at Starcom and Publicis Media all the best for the future.”
Anupriya Acharya, group CEO, Publicis Media India, said, “We are going to miss Malli. His tenure at Starcom has been exemplary and working with him has been a wonderful experience. Starcom has had a phenomenal journey under his leadership and he has made a tremendous contribution to giving a strong foundation to Publicis Media too. Our best wishes are with him for his next assignment.”
Prior to joining Starcom, Das was COO, Madison Media Infinity.
