Said Amit Adarkar, CEO of Ipsos in India, who held the additional charge of APEC Operations Director has now handed out the APEC Operations portfolio to Garkhel: “It was extremely important to synchronise operations in the region and to tie up the loose ends, at the same time leverage opportunities, which I did for most part in 2019 and now that things are on a smooth grid, Garkhel will be adept at taking it forward. I have my hands full with my India role,” said Amit Adarkar, CEO, Ipsos in India.


Garkhel will be overseeing operations of 12 markets in the APEC region (India, Hong Kong, Singapore, Vietnam, South Korea, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, ANZ, Philippines, Taiwan and Japan). He will report to Hamish Munro, Global CEO, Ipsos Interactive Services (IIS) and Operations and on the dotted line to Christophe Cambournac, CEO, Ipsos AMEA (Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa).


Thakurta, on the other hand, apart from leading the National Field Operations will also oversee Quality Assurance & Budget & Planning for Ipsos in India, and report to Amit Adarkar, CEO, Ipsos in India. Thakurta has about 27 years of work experience straddling Ipsos, Nielsen, TNS, Gallup and Indica in different capacities, within India and other geographies.


Patgaonkar, with almost two decades in data processing is credited with driving new initiatives for iField (data capture via tablets, completely eliminating pen and paper form of data gathering), automation and dashboards, interfacing with other Ipsos markets in the region. He reports to Raja Bunet, executive director, Mobile First & New Initiatives, Ipsos in India.
