He will continue to manage a cluster of brands under Publicis Capital and report to Srija Chatterjee, MD, Publicis India. 
Chatterjee said, “Suraj has been one of our top performers managing key clients and winning new businesses consistently for over three years now. Under his leadership, the Mumbai office has seen an exponential growth while he also effectively continues to drive and mentor a strong and dedicated team of doers. I am also thrilled as he undertakes a new role to steer Publicis Emil in India and am confident he will continue to exceed expectations as always.”

I’m fortunate to have had a fantastic and committed team that’s partnered me in chasing this growth and I’m sure will help take it farther. I’m also honoured to have been entrusted with the leadership of Publicis Emil India, to partner Daimler India in their journey of transformation and in the process take the Mercedes-Benz brand and business to even greater heights. And I’m once again fortunate to have a young, enthusiastic and talented team to help do just that.”
