Rajeev Sharma, national planning director, Leo Burnett, has decided to move on after spending close to 23 years at the agency. He had joined the Delhi office in 1994 as vice president.
Sharma said, “After 23 years, it is time for me to bid a fond farewell to a fabulous organisation, amazing colleagues and equally amazing clients. I am proud of what the agency stands for, for what it has achieved and what it is in the process of becoming. As I prepare for the next chapter of my life, I shall watch with great satisfaction, the success Leo Burnett is sure to notch up in the future.”
Saurabh Varma, CEO – South Asia, Leo Burnett, said, “Rajeev set up Leo Burnett’s planning function from scratch and since then has led a robust team that has grown many brands in complex market scenarios, in the process winning many awards. Under his leadership, we produced some of the most iconic and culturally rooted campaigns by approaching consumers through a human lens. I thank Rajeev wholeheartedly and wish him the very best for his future endeavours.”
