Former FCB Ulka COO Sanjay Tandon joins Thinkstr as CEO

MUMBAI: Thinkstr, an independent multi-functional agency based in Gurgaon has announced the appointment of Sanjay Tandon as chief executive officer (CEO). Prior to this, Tandon was the chief operating officer (COO) at FCB Ulka.

Thinkstr founder Satbir Singh said, “As we grow and expand, we needed someone who’d bring much-needed method to the madness. Sanjay comes with years of solid experience across telecom, automotive, e-com, FMCG, durables, lifestyle categories. Not only has he run a large agency office, but he also brings precious experience from the other side, having been a client. That understanding of business dynamics makes Thinkstr’s offering stronger. And to top it all, he’s a friend of nearly two decades!”

Tandon said, “When I met Satbir, it was like continuing from where we left when we worked together professionally in the past. We share a passion for being very consumer-centric, client-focused and doing work that places our brands ahead of the curve in the market.”

He added, “Marketers are today fragmenting their energy and focus across multiple agencies, suffering cost inefficiency, lack of agility and inadequate senior level expertise to navigate their brand’s journey in the consumer’s life. At Thinkstr, we are geared to think ahead and deliver marketing programs with excellence.”

Tandon was previously the consumer - marketing head at RSPL (Xpert Dishwash, Proease Sanitary Pads, Uniwash Detergent (India & Bangladesh), Ghari (Bangladesh) and new FMCG development in India and Bangladesh.
