Innocean India has announced the appointment of Santosh Kumar as chief operating officer. Kumar moves after an entrepreneurial stint in Singapore, during which he was running a consulting company (Wize Tech).
The company helped traditional advertising agencies and brands transform into digital-first organisations by building digital capabilities across South East Asia and India.
Hak-No Yun, managing director, Innocean India, said, “We are delighted to welcome Santosh at a critical juncture in our operations. Besides bringing a wealth of experience in all aspects of the digital marketing business, Santosh also possesses demonstrated leadership abilities, which are vital assets for a company like Innocean that is rapidly evolving to provide holistic brand and consumer experiences, not just advertising. We are confident Santosh’s in-depth knowledge and experience will prove invaluable as we progress towards becoming one of India’s leading integrated marketing agencies.”
Kumar said, “I am thrilled to join Innocean at this exciting time of transformation and help guide the agency towards becoming a modern, forward-thinking company that delivers comprehensive brand experiences. With digital, data, and creativity at the core of our operations, I will put my best efforts to position Innocean as one of India's top advertising and communication agencies by building world-class digital and integrated marketing capabilities."
Kumar has also worked with Perx Technologies, Webitude, HT Media and ZenithOptimedia.
