Omnicom Media Group's CEO Harish Shriyan to step down
Harish Shriyan, CEO, Omnicom Media Group India, has decided to move on from the agency. 
 
He will leave the agency by the end of 2019. Over the next six months, Shriyan will work closely with the agencies’ senior leadership team to ensure a smooth transition for the business while the group searches for a new CEO.
 
He joined the agency in 2007. He was elevated as CEO in December 2017, prior to which he was COO. 
 
Shriyan said, “I am incredibly honoured to have had the opportunity to work with so many talented individuals over the years and been part of the group’s establishment and growth in India. Given its strength in the form of its unique brand positioning, talent pool, infrastructure and exemplary leadership, I am confident that this is the right time for me to pass the baton on. I also have every confidence that the group and its agencies will continue to excel in India and will follow their journey with pride and admiration.”
 
Tony Harradine, CEO, Omnicom Media Group Apac, added, “Since its launch, Omnicom Media Group India has continued to go from strength to strength, becoming a key part of our Global business; Harish has been an integral part of that journey as a founding member and custodian of our brands. We thank Harish for all of his contributions to our business over the past 12 years and wish him all the best for the future.”
