Hungama Digital Services (HDS) has appointed Surya Narayanan as the head of business. He joins the agency from Squad Digital, where he was GM of West Africa, based in Ghana.
This follows the exit of Kunal Arora, who held the position prior to Narayanan, a month ago.
Carlton D’Silva, CEO and CCO, HDS, said, “Surya has made the perfect and successful transition between traditional and digital advertising. Not only does he have a great business mind but he is an ideas man too. This is quite a rarity and it is this business and medium knowledge that Surya will bring to HDS to enable us to reach greater heights and wins moving forward.”
Narayanan said, “After having worked in various online and offline agencies in India and abroad across the last 12 years, it's good to be back home. I am very excited to work with the young and dynamic team at HDS. It would be my honour and privilege to work with Carlton and the talented team at HDS. Looking forward to apply the learning of the past decade in this new challenge."
He has also worked with DigitasLBi, Leo Burnett and JWT.
