Publicis Groupe has announced that Amaresh Godbole, CEO, Digitas India, will be stepping down in March, to join Google. Godbole has been with the company since 2009 and has been instrumental in scaling up the business in the country.


Said Anupriya Acharya, CEO, Publicis Groupe South Asia: “Amaresh has been a Publicis Groupe loyalist for over a decade. He is moving on to an interesting profile and we’re all extremely happy and supportive of this next chapter in his career. We value his contributions and wish him the very best. He is with us for a couple of months, and is committed to helping us plan a smooth transition. We will announce the succession plan in due course.”


Added Godbole: “I have nothing but gratitude for my years at Publicis Groupe and Digitas. I have had the opportunity to grow as a professional and as an individual. I doubt I would have ever considered moving out for a similar role elsewhere. I felt ready for this one because Digitas has a phenomenal leadership team in place and is now at a scale where it is self-sustaining. We’ve had our best ever performance last year. Further, with the Groupe’s “Power of One” strategy and Anupriya’s leadership I have no doubt about its continued success.”
