After the launch of Publicis Ambience in Bangalore a couple of months ago, the agency has now brought in Vinod Vijaykumar to head the office as vice president - Bangalore.
Vijaykumar's work experience encompasses working with both regional and global brands, ranging from fashion and lifestyle to FMCG and finance. In a career spanning 12 years, he has worked on brands like ITC’s Classmate notebooks, Apple, SPAR, Visa, Titan Eye Plus, Tanishq etc.
Aniruddha Banerjee, chairman, Publicis Ambience, commented, “We see great potential in Bangalore. We have a fully functional Chennai office and the addition of Bangalore gives us a certain organizational agility which is much required in the south.”
Kaustav Das, executive vice president – South, added, "Vinod has the passion and the versatility required to build a new office from scratch. I am confident that Vinod Vijay Kumar armed with our Contagious Ideas philosophy will be the potent new force that can shake up the Bangalore market"
Said Vijaykumar, “I am very excited to join the ‘conversation’ agency. To my mind Publicis holds the key to next practices in integrated communication with its clear belief in marketing as conversation and the need for an idea to be contagious. My mandate is simple; to draw and nurture a happy bunch of team mates and clients who can resist the obvious.”
