Anil Nair in Saatchi global leadership team

21 Aug,2017


By A Correspondent


Anil S Nair, CEO and Managing Partner of L&K Saatchi & Saatchi India, has been inducted into the global leadership team of Saatchi & Saatchi. The team, under the leadership of Magnus Djaba, Global President, Saatchi & Saatchi, is looking at building  the future of the Saatchi brand and its business.


The new  global leadership team represents Saatchi & Saatchi’s major offices and clients, all within the Publicis Groupe’s crucial path of transformation under the  Publicis Communications (PubCom) umbrella.


Praveen Kenneth

It may be recalled that the Publicis Groupe had acquired the then independent Law & Kenneth in early 2014 and merged it with the Indian operations of Saatchi & Saatchi. As part of the merger process, the management of the new entity was that of the old L&K team, even though it was part of the Saatchi & Saatchi and hence Publicis Groupe. The step may be the next step towards L&K S&S being a wholly owned Publicis Groupe company. The earn-out period for Praveen Kenneth,  Co-Owner, Chairman and Managing Director L&K Saatchi & Saatchi is due to end later this year.


Said Kenneth in a statement: “[I] am extremely pleased and proud of  L&K Saatchi & Saatchi being among the Top 10 countries in the Saatchi World and having our CEO and Managing Partner Anil Nair on the global leadership team of Saatchi & Saatchi Worldwide. When Magnus and I spoke, recently, we had no doubt that Anil Nair will be the worthy flagbearer going forward,  of what has been a brilliant adventure over the last 15 years, and more importantly as he leads L&K | Saatchi & Saatchi into the future. He is also an integral part of PubCom India.”


Magnus Djaba

Commenting on this appointment, Djaba said: “The Indian market is crucial to our business and Anil represents the next generation of leadership for our network. I’m really looking forward to working more closely with him”


Reacting to his appointment, Nair added: “For me this invitation is a huge validation and recognition of the team at L&K Saatchi & Saatchi India and their hard work. It’s an honour to be a part of the leadership team that shapes the future of an iconic network like Saatchi & Saatchi.
