BBH India has announced a new addition to their leadership structure by bringing in Arvind Krishnan as managing director. Mr Krishnan comes back to BBH India after a stint at BBH London where he was Team Director, managing a diverse portfolio of Unilever, Diageo and other brands.

 

Mr Krishnan will join the team of Subhash Kamath, CEO & Managing Partner, and Russell Barrett, CCO & Managing Partner, along with Sanjay Sharma, Head of Planning, Puneet Kapoor, Executive Creative Director and Rishit Mehta, Finance Director, to form the core leadership team at BBH India. He will report into Mr Kamath.

 

Said Mr Subhash Kamath, “Russell and I are delighted that Arvind will be returning to us. He was one of our first recruits at BBH India and has been an outstanding star in the company. He brings a huge amount of drive and passion to the team here, combined with the valuable experience he’s gained during his tenure at BBH London. We have no doubt that both our people and our clients will benefit greatly from his leadership.”

 

Said Gwyn Jones, Global CEO at the Publicis Groupe-owned BBH, “Arvind has done an excellent job for the agency and its clients in Mumbai and London. It is great for us to be able to grow management from within and also develop talent for the future by moving from office to office like this.”

 

Said Mr Krishnan, “It’s great to be back. It’s been a fantastic experience working on global brands and helping them navigate through different markets. It has taught me the value of simplicity. Simplicity, that allows ideas to stretch and flex across geographies. The opportunity to apply this and create market-moving work at home is exciting and I’m thrilled at the prospect of working with the team in Mumbai again.”
