Sumeer Mathur joins DDB Mudra North

MUMBAI: DDB Mudra Group has announced the appointment of Sumeer Mathur as DDB Mudra North strategic planning senior VP and head.


Based out of DDB Mudra North’s Gurgaon office, Mathur will work closely with national strategic planning head Aditya Kanthy, to lead planning and brand management for the agency.


Before joining DDB Mudra North, Sumeer was associated with JWT (Delhi). During his tenure at JWT, he led award winning campaigns for Airtel Money and Microsoft. Apart from JWT, he has also worked with Rediffusion Y&R, Lowe Mumbai, Contract and SSC&B Lintas.


On joining DDB Mudra North, Mathur said, “I am quite excited by the opportunity DDB Mudra North offers. While many agencies talk about the change in communication landscape, DDB Mudra Group seems to be the only one that has multiple disciplines working together to build brands under one roof. Too often the area of influence of the planner remains constricted to cracking an insight that turns into a TV campaign. I was also drawn to the culture of the agency which came through during my interactions with Madhukar, Aditya and Vandana.”


Mathur brings to the agency an experience of over 15 years in communications across brands while being based in Mumbai and Delhi. He has worked with leading brands, across categories ranging from automobiles (Hyundai & Tata motors) FMCG (GSK, Unilever, Colgate Palmolive and Unicharm), household appliances and home electronics (LG and Microsoft), social health (USAID), airlines (Kingfisher airlines, Spice Jet) and hospitality (Taj Hotels & Resorts). He has also undertaken regional and global responsibilities for Unilever Brands (Fair & lovely, Lifebuoy shampoo, Clinic all Clear) for the South East Asian markets.


Kanthy said, “We’re thrilled to have Sumeer on board. He’s an incredible talent. Vandana, Sambit and Sumeer make a formidable team in Delhi. He’s excited about working with all the DDB Mudra Group agencies under one roof and leading our bright young team to create influence and apply creative thinking for business growth. We’ve got a lot to do to be the best agency in the city and he’s up for it.”


Added DDB Mudra North president Vandana Das,I’m so excited to have Sameer as part of the DDB Mudra group in Delhi. Sumeer is a dynamic leader & brings with him experience & maturity that is required to strengthen existing brands while ensuring that we are on a growth drive. I believe that he is a great asset & we can use his skills and talents in making our agency reach new heights.”
