The Advertising Standards Council of India’s (ASCI’s) board has re-elected Subhash Kamath, CEO, BBH and Publicis WW India, as chairman. This is Kamath's second consecutive term.
NS Rajan, managing director, August One Partners, was re-elected as the vice chairman of the board.
Kamath said, “I thank the board for its support and trust. We have flagged off important initiatives in the digital space, such as the influencer guidelines and the monitoring of promotional content. We are becoming future-ready in this ever-changing marketing and media landscape. The second term will allow me to push further with these initiatives, which are showing immense promise. As we expand our presence, we are engaging more with consumers as well to increase awareness of their rights.”
The ASCI board was expanded this year with the inclusion of members such as academician and social activist Dr Ranjana Kumari, educationist Dr Indu Sahani, technology entrepreneur Rajesh Patel, and finance sector expert and former editor Rajrishi Singhal.
