Dentsu Creative has announced the appointment of Sumeer Mathur as chief strategy officer. Mathur moves from Havas Worldwide, where he was national strategy head and managing partner.
He will report to Amit Wadhwa, chief executive officer, Dentsu Creative India.
Mathur's mandate includes brand management, digital, and PR.
Wadhwa said, "Sumeer’s appointment takes us a step further toward our vision for Dentsu Creative in India to lead the way in modern creativity. He not only brings in knowledge and credibility from some of the best agencies but also has vast experience across brands, digital and PR, which indeed makes him the perfect fit. I, along with the entire leadership team, are looking forward to working closely with him and reaching new milestones in the future."
Mathur added, "Frankly, it's a privilege to join the team at Dentsu. There isn't a communication agency in the country right now that combines tech, culture, craft, and ideas the way dentsu does. They are ahead of the curve and have their feet firmly planted in the future, in order to deliver value to clients."
In a career spanning close to two decades, he has also worked with Rediffusion, Lowe Lintas, JWT, DDB Mudra and Edelman.
