Leo Burnett Orchard has made changes to its leadership team. Manav Rai Ahuja has been appointed as VP and branch head for the agency's Mumbai office. Ahuja moves from Leo Burnett India's Gurugram office where he was VP. 
Leo Burnett Orchard Mumbai's previous VP and branch head, Sharmine Panthaky, has moved to the Bengaluru branch in the same capacity. Panthaky will head the Amazon account. 
Ahuja and Panthaky will report to Mahuya Chaturvedi, COO, Leo Burnett Orchard. 
Chaturvedi said, “Manav comes in with the rich experience of working on some of the biggest brands across categories. He will take the momentum of the Mumbai branch forward, keeping its winning streak going. His mandate is to grow the great body of work that the branch has done in 2017, by manifold. I expect 2018 to be an exceptional year for Leo Burnett Orchard Mumbai with Manav and Amod Dani (ECD, Leo Burnett Orchard Mumbai) working together to create some fantastic work for our clients.”
Ahuja had joined the agency in 2009 from Leo Burnett India. 
He said, “Leo Burnett Orchard has great momentum right now. We have an exciting set of brands and the right mix of people to create some great work in the coming months. My personal focus would be to delight my current and prospective clients by offering them integrated solutions to their brand problems. I look forward to my new role with all its exciting challenges.”
