Citizen Dentsu consolidates under Dentsu Communication

MUMBAI: Dentsu India has announced that its social communication division Citizen Dentsu will be consolidated under Dentsu Communication.

Launched in April 2009, Citizen Dentsu aims at government and semi-government clients, as well as creating corporate social responsibility (CSR) programmes for its corporate customers.

The media communication conglomerate aims to build Citizen Dentsu as a ‘Centre of Knowledge’ with specialised skill sets and strategic capabilities that would address the specific sector requirements and focus on building currency for causes, and thereby deliver value-added communication solutions for social clients.

The agency has also got Rajendra Singh on board as senior vice president.

Dentsu India Group EC Rohit Ohri said, “Our investment is going to be on ‘innovations’, so as to create currency for social issues. I’m delighted to have Rajendra Singh on board to lead this new initiative.”

Dentsu Communications CEO Arijit Ray added, “Our endeavour has been to put together a team with the right mix of cross-category and cultural learning and passion for social marketing. I am sure Rajendra and his team will strive towards building and crafting simple and breakthrough solutions that will add value to various community groups and stakeholders.”

Singh’s last tenure was with JWT, where he worked for 10 years. Apart from a set of mainstream clients, Singh has headed JWT’s social communications division called Thompson Social for five years. He has worked on a multitude of social programmes, from issues like HIV/Aids, Polio, child health and safe motherhood, health and hygiene to causes such as environment, education, food safety and drug usage for clients like UNICEF, World Bank and Nike Foundation.
