Venke Sharma has decided to move on from Leo Burnett Network after a six-year stint. His last role in the agency network was as executive director, head of digital – technical advisor, Indonesia.
Previously, Sharma was leading Leo Burnett’s marketing services arm Arc Worldwide in India.
Sharma said, “It has been an extremely satisfying and eventful tenure at Leo Burnett. Setting and scaling up the integrated marketing services arm of Leo Burnett - Arc Worldwide - in India and thereafter building the digital practice in Indonesia are highlights of my tenure with the network. Leo Burnett has provided me ample opportunities to build upon my expertise in digital and also manage initiatives of scale in shopper, direct and activation. Opportunity to move into other markets and build digital engagement models of scale for clients such as Coca-Cola, P&G, Samsung and others has been very satisfying.”
Sharma’s last day with the organisation is on 12 April, and his next destination is not yet known.
Sharma moved to Indonesia in February 2012, before spending five years with Arc Worldwide in India. Previously, Sharma was the co-founder and country head of Tribal DDB India.
