Pops said, "The core of our consumers across product categories is becoming younger and younger with every passing year. So it is only fair that we have young creative leaders who speak the language of youth and understand new-age challenges for brands and businesses."

Earlier for agencies in India TV advertising was the core of marketing plans and specialist services were bought from smaller independent shops. Their clients are now demanding new ways of approaching advertising suited to the rapidly changing environment.

This transformation is extremely exciting.

This new generation is tomorrows? world thinkers- bold, brave and curious. They naturally defy the status quo and open up infinite possibilities for modern day communication."

Leo Burnett Asia Pacific president Jarek Ziebinski said, "Business growth in India is coming from innovative thinking that keeps the youth at the centre and technology as the backdrop. Our creative restructuring in India is in step with that growth story and I am completely convinced that the youth will fuel growth of India as well as of Burnett in the near future."
