Publicis Worldwide Managing Director Partha Sinha is moving on. To join McCann Worldgroup, reportedly as Vice Chairman and reporting in to Prasoon Joshi, CEO of McCann Worldgroup India and Chairman (Asia Pacific).

 

Although Sinha said there was no such development when MxMIndia spoke to him last Friday, according to a senior McCann official, the news is confirmed.

 

Interestingly, Sinha had just been made Managing Director of the Publicis Groupe agency in July this year two years after he and Bobby Pawar joined theagency. Earlier this year, there were murmurs that Pawar too was quitting, a move that was rubbished by all.

 

As reported on Tuesday, McCann COO Govind Pandey has moved to TBWA India as CEO.

 

According to the information received, the news of Sinha’s joining McCann will be made official later today or this week after some key clients of Publicis have been informed of the development.

 

Interestingly, Maggi, the brand whose strategy Sinha would oversee at Publicis, has moved to McCann until further notice.
