Sanjay Shukla, chief operating officer of Percept One (marcom entities of Percept), has resigned with immediate effect. He joined Percept in 2007 and was elevated as COO of Percept One in 2015.
Nupur Mahajan, who came on board in December 2015, will head Percept One as CEO. She has been working with the management to draw out future plans for the marcom business, informed an official statement. She will now be responsible for leading marcom services, overseeing a team of 500 people in 10 cities, the statement added.
Mahajan was a consultant with the Star Network and DB Realty, and a columnist with tabloid Mid-day prior to joining Percept.
Ajay Upadhyay, COO, Percept, said, “We strongly believe that Nupur will be able to provide the leadership that Percept One needs to become a strong unified marcom service. Her global leadership experience and brand experience across manifold portfolios will help us leverage the scale and achieve the growth targets we have set for ourselves. Collaboration and integration is the value we bring to the table and Nupur is the ideal person to lead us on that path. Sanjay has been an integral part of the successful growth story of Percept, and we wish him the very best as he steps into new frontiers.”
