Post buyout, four senior executives leave Dentsu

MUMBAI: After Dentsu bought out its joint venture partner in India in January this year, four senior executives have resigned—the latest being Dentsu India president Rajesh Aggarwal.
All the four leaders have resigned in the month of April.

In the beginning of April, Dentsu India chief growth officer-media Anwesh Bose resigned after spending nearly six years at the agency. He also held the positions of general manager-media and business director. He has joined Mudra Max as its branch head for North and East.

Dentsu India operations vice-chairman Gullu Sen followed. He had joined the agency in 2003 as executive vice-president and national creative director and in 2006 was promoted as VC.
Next in line was Dentsu Marcom national creative director Nitin Suri.

And finally, Aggarwal, who was one of the founding members of Dentsu India, has now resigned from the agency after a spell of nearly eight years.

Talking to, Aggarwal said, "The time has come to move out and explore new opportunities. Its always exciting to create something new and nourish it."
His association with Dentsu began in 2004 as Dentsu Marcom executive director and head. He began his career in the mid-1980s as an account executive at Edge Communications, Everest’s creative boutique. After spending nearly five years at the agency, he left as group manager and in 1991 joined Rediff.

In 2000, Aggarwal joined Panasonic (earlier National Panasonic) as head of marketing. He returned to Rediff a year later as general manager and stepped down as senior vice-president in 2004 to join Dentsu.
