Publicis Groupe has appointed Sridhar Ramasubramanian as CFO for South Asia. He moves from GroupM where he was COO and CFO four South Asia.
Sridhar will take over from Pankaj Vasani who has exited the agency.
Anupriya Acharya, CEO, Publicis Groupe, South Asia, said, “I am delighted to welcome Sridhar Ramasubramanian on-board. Sridhar brings with him a very successful track record of strategic thinking and unwavering focus on driving long-term organisational goals and objectives. While we are sad to see Pankaj go, I would like to thank him for his immense contribution to the Groupe and wish him great success in his future endeavours.”
Vasani said, “This was not an easy decision on my part and it took a great deal of consideration. It is always exciting and yet, a bit unnerving to move out of your comfort zone. But, as they say - do what you got to do. I’m headed off to explore my next chapter. And I’ll be a proud Publicis alumnus here onwards.”
Ramasubramanian said, “I am excited to join Publicis Groupe South Asia at a time when the Groupe sees such growth, dynamism, talent and momentum. I look forward to contributing to the success of the organisation.”
