MUMBAI: Former Publicis SVP Atin Wahal has joined advertising agency BBDO as the new executive vice president. Wahal will head the Mumbai office. 

BBDO Asia chairman and CEO Jean-Paul Burge says, “This is a key role in a key market for a key office. India and BBDO India are booming and I have no doubt Atin will make a great success of taking our Mumbai office to greater heights. We have a fantastic team there and a tremendous culture which I am certain he will bring an exciting new dimension to.”

Wahal adds, “I have always considered myself being in the business of storytelling for brands and I am thrilled to be a part of the team who is the best in the business not only in India but the world. What got my attention when meeting Josy, Ajai and JP is how simplistic but thorough the approach is towards their brands which lends itself to the philosophy of ‘acts, not ads’. In the last 10 years, BBDO India has been the most effective and creative agency in the world and I look forward to making the agency and its clients shine even brighter."    

BBDO India chairman and chief creative officer Josy Paul mentions, “Atin is a hands-on advertising and brand management champion with a strong business acumen. He is a believer and partitioner of our ‘Acts Not Ads’ mantra and a keen follower of social movements led by brands–including our work on Gillette, Ariel, Whisper, Mirinda, Quaker, Visa, SC Johnsons, All Out and Aviva Life Insurance. We are thrilled to have him on our side. Spiritually, he is already one of us.”
