Santosh Padhi, co-founder and chief creative officer, Taproot Dentsu, is the latest high-profile exit at dentsu International.

His partner Agnello Dias had exited the agency last month. Padhi is the sixth high-profile exit at the agency. He follows Shamsuddin Jasani (MD - South Asia, Isobar), Anand Bhadkamkar (CEO, dentsu India)Gautam Mehra, chief data and product officer (Apac); Rubeena Singh, CEO, iProspect; and Vivek Bhargava, head of Dentsu Performance Group out of the agency.

Padhi had co-founded Taproot with Dias, which was acquired by dentsu in 2012. Both the co-founders had a lock-in of five years and their 100% shares transfer and hand over happened back in 2017.
Padhi said, "The new leadership team at Taproot Dentsu sets the tone for the future of the agency. They are a talented bunch of minds and I am confident they will continue to drive Taproot dentsu’s creative reputation going forward. I was lucky and blessed to have been showered with so much love and respect from the dentsu family over my wonderful 10-year-long journey. I preserve some beautiful memories which will always be close to my heart. My best wishes to the young and dynamic network for their further journey."
