On his new role, Arora said, ?After over a decade in advertising, I knew it was time for a fresh start. Interactions with Dentsu?s global and India management gave me an understanding of Dentsu?s India ambition and growth plans. The role offered to me was not only challenging and inspiring but also something that could be the logical next step for me professionally.?

As strategic business partner with JWT, Delhi at both the corporate and business unit level, CP tracked financial efficiency and profitability, risk management, legal and compliance and overall financial operations for JWT Delhi Office.

The production house serviced agencies such as JWT, McCann Erickson, Ogilvy, Leo Burnett, Lowe, Publicis and Cheil Communications among others.

Day said, ?After my years in the film production business, I am excited to get back to the agency fold. The function of a film department is to raise the bar and ensure that the creative and client partner?s expectations are more than satisfied. With my new role at Dentsu India, I look forward to partner with the creatives to produce outstanding campaign work that takes brands to the next level of trust with the consumer.?
