Draftfcb + Ulka has appointed Sanjay Tandon as the chief operating officer of its Delhi operations. He replaces Sanjeev Bhargava, who has now moved to head JWT Delhi’s operations.

Prior to this, Tandon was senior vice president at the Delhi office and handled the entire Tata Docomo business. He started his career in sales and marketing, before joining FCB Ulka in 1997. He spent the next seven years handling major accounts like LML, HP, Samsung, Mother Dairy and British Airways and rose to the position of client servicing director. Post this, he took up assignments at Bates as vice president and then at JWT where he worked on businesses like Nokia, Yamaha and Pepsico Flavours and Juices respectively. Tandon returned to Draftfcb + Ulka in 2009.

Commenting on Tandon’s appointment, Arvind Wable, executive director and chief executive officer, Draftfcb + Ulka Delhi, said, “Sanjay Tandon’s appointment to the top echelons of the agency once again reinforces our values and commitment to growth from within and I am certain that he will lead the Delhi office to greater heights of business growth, team building, brand building and creative excellence.”

Tandon said, “It’s a special feeling to be entrusted with leading a gold standard team at Draftfcb Ulka Delhi. Creating and building BrandWealth for our clients remains our singular objective and my personal energies along with the team will be dedicated towards realizing this.”

On Bhargava’s exit, Wable said, “We will all miss Sanjeev, both as a wonderful person and as a true advertising professional who has contributed immensely to the agency over the years. On behalf of the entire agency, I would like to wish him all the very best in his new assignment.”
