Commenting on Bhargava, Tarun Rai, CEO, J Walter Thompson Company South Asia said; “Sanjeev has done an excellent job in growing JWT Delhi. He is a fantastic professional and has had a stellar career in advertising. He now leaves to start a new career in media and I am sure he will do a great job. I thank him for all that he has done for us and wish him the very best for the future.”


Commenting on the new roles,  Rai said, “Joy, Babita and Kishore have been performing exceptionally well. They are at a stage in their careers where they have a great balance of experience and youth. I am really happy that, as an organisation, we are able to provide opportunities, at the right time, for people to grow. This is also a reflection on the bench strength of JWT. And a signal to all our employees that whenever there is any opportunity in our company we will first look at internal candidates. I am confident that the three of them will continue to perform at the highest level.”


Joy Chauhan, currently head of JWT Bengaluru, will take over as the head of JWT Delhi operations. Kishore Tadepalli, who has been JWT’s head of Hindustan Unilever business, takes over from Joy as head of JWT Bengaluru.  And Babita Baruah gets independent charge of JWT’s business unit – Power of One (PO1) – that handles a large number of PepsiCo’s flagship brands.  Baruah will now report in to Rai.


The changes come into effect from January 1, 2017.
