It’s confirmed.  Dentsu APAC big boss Ashish Bhasin has decided to move on.

According to an internal email, he has been granted early retirement

Said Bhasin: “I have had a wonderful 13+ years and have enjoyed leading Dentsu India and Dentsu APAC. In this journey I was lucky to have a brilliant team, very supportive colleagues and have made some lovely friends for life. Dentsu is a great company and I wish them the very best.

I am unable to comment on my future plans for now but in the meanwhile I am really looking forward to going to Harvard for the Advanced Management Program, for which I have secured admission for the next semester.”

Meanwhile, Dentsu international has issued a statement:

Dentsu International confirms that Ashish Bhasin, CEO Dentsu APAC & Chairman India is seeking early retirement from Dentsu after 13 years with the business. It is his last day today.
