Neo@Ogilvy Appoints Deepankar Kapoor head of strategy for India

MUMBAI: Neo@Ogilvy announced Deepankar Kapoor as Vice President and Head of Strategy – India, Neo@Ogilvy. He will be based in Gurgaon.

Kapoor comes to Neo@Ogilvy with work experience that is richly diverse and spans eight years in digital strategy and planning. Kapoor has worked on multiple aspects of this business - creative, content, media, technology and CRM providing solutions for a roster of blue chip brands. He joins Neo@Ogilvy from Havas Media where he was leading the digital strategy function while working with brands such as Star TV, Sun Pharmaceuticals, LG, Amway, Xolo, Clovia among others.

Neo@Ogilvy India president & country head Rajesh Bhatia said, “I have always emphasised the need and importance of sophisticated strategy and planning talent – this skill is often compromised by digital agencies.

Academically, he holds an MBA from the University of Calcutta, a degree in Communications Management from Symbiosis International University and a Diploma in Cyber Laws from Government Law College Mumbai.
