There is going to be a change of guard at Rediffusion Y&R as Dhunji Wadia will retire from the agency network in August 2018. Rahul Jauhari and Navonil Chatterjee will take charge as Joint Presidents at the Rediffusion Y&R group. Wadia had joined the group in 2010 first helming Everest and then in late 2014 as President of the Rediffusion Y&R group. While there is no official communication on this, the succession has been announced internally via mail. Jauhari is currently Chief Creative Officer, Chatterjee is Chief Strategy Officer.

Although, the agency bagged the coveted State Bank of India account recently, there have been mixed reports on how the agency is doing in terms of business, thanks to an indifferent advertising services scenario in the country as well as a longstanding dispute with WPP group. But now with the exit of Sir Martin Sorrell from WPP, as reported by MxMIndia earlier, there have been talks of Rediff Y&R buying out the 40 per cent stake of WPP and Dentsu. In the past Rediffusion has lost some prized accounts like Airtel and Colgate.


With over three decades of experience in the business, Wadia has been associated with major national and international brands like Parle, Tata, Unilever, Nike, Levi Strauss, Diamond Trading Co, Kellogg, Aditya Birla Group, Sony Entertainment Television – Max and SAB, Kotak amongst others. Both Jauhari and Chatterjee joined Rediff in mid-2015.
