Ajit Menon quits DDB Mudra; to join Dalmia Group

MUMBAI: DDB Mudra Group executive director, organisation development Ajit Menon has decided to move on. His next destination is the Dalmia Group where he will be executive director.

Menon will be based out of Gurgaon and in charge of HR and administration at Dalmia Group.

DDB Mudra Group is yet to find a replacement for Menon. The HR and administration functions will currently be divided between Sebastian Joseph (who has been recently elevated to the post of chief executive officer ) and Rita Verma who will take over the HR duties.

Talking to Menon said, "I have worked in almost all industries. The only industry left for me to work in was manufacturing. Dalmia is a traditional Indian company which has done very well for itself and is poised to take things to the next level. It is a similar situation to the one at DDB Mudra (before the takeover). It was an agency when I joined and I worked very closely with Madhukar Kamath to transform it into a communications group. It is the same challenge with the Dalmia Group, only that the scale is tenfold larger."

Menon joined DDB Mudra Group (then Mudra Communications) in 2007 as executive vice president. In 2010 he was elevated to the post of Executive director- organization development. He has previously worked with Nirvava Business Solutions and WNS Global Services.

Menon was recently conferred with the Rashtriya Udyog Ratna award by the National Education and Human Resource Organisation and the Pride of HR award by Employer Brand Awards. In 2011, Menon won the ‘Exemplary Leader‘ Award at the Asia Pac Summit of the World HRD Congress.
