NEW DELHI: Publicis Groupe has appointed Tanmay Mohanty to the newly created role of CEO media service.

A force for digital and data transformation throughout his career, Mohanty’s most recent four years as CEO of Zenith have been spent in expanding the Mumbai and Bengaluru footprint of the organisation, operationalising Epsilon PeopleCloud platform, helping clients pivot to a data-driven future and contributing to key new business wins like Hero MotoCorp and GSK.

The appointment comes as part of a wider restructuring in the agency’s media services domain. Publicis is bringing together data science, programmatic and media tech along with Zenith and Starcom, under a common leadership to further strengthen focus on scaled media, real identity and data capabilities. This realignment will help expediting its media product around Epsilon PeopleCloud, Epsilon powered data services, programmatic amongst others. Sapient Razorfish, will also be part of this offering and will focus on consulting solutions around full spectrum of real identity, digital, data and media tech.

Other key promotions have also been announced in this structure. Jai Lala will now take on the role of Zenith CEO and will continue to work with Mohanty. In his two plus years as COO for Zenith, he has been instrumental in driving excellent client relations and operational efficiencies across the board. He has also been instrumental in settling the Zenith Delhi operations.

She will also continue to oversee Publicis-in-Motion, the Groupe’s experiential, shopper and OOH marketing practice.

Publicis Groupe south Asia CEO Anupriya Acharya said, “Earlier in the year, we bolstered our creative agencies capabilities on the digital marketing solutions. Now we wanted to realign our media capabilities in a manner that propels the synergies between data, tech, digital to deliver scaled media solutions developed from a deeper understanding of audiences and how best to influence them.”

She went on to added, “Tanmay has an exceptional range of experience in digital, data, media and technology. Coupled with his leadership on nurturing agency teams with strong client centricity, makes him a natural fit for the role.”

Tanmay Mohanty said, “Media is increasingly a critical and strategic part of  the entire mix and the focus is on real-time messaging, compelling solutions delivered at scale, efficiently and with speed. The new alignment builds on our core competencies on digital, data and tech and also helps leverage all the diverse expert skills in a more unified manner. I look forward to working with our very talented teams to further build on our momentum on media excellence.”
