Mumbai: GroupM, WPP’s media investment group on Thursday appointed Madhvi Pahwa as its new chief people officer for the South Asia region (APAC). Pahwa, previously chief people officer at Mindshare APAC was promoted into the role to lead the GroupM India talent team and develop the company's talent proposition for the region. She will report to GroupM South Asia CEO, Prasanth Kumar.

In her six years as Mindshare’s APAC CPO, Pahwa led several ground-breaking initiatives in the region including, the design and rollout of Mindshare’s award-winning ‘Balance’ program in APAC. This resilience training programme won a Women Leading Change Award two years in a row (2020 & 2021) and is now being extended globally. She is also credited for bringing Mindshare’s ‘Momentum’ high potential leadership training programme to Asia and delivering numerous L&D programmes across commerce, AI, and planning.

GroupM South Asia, chief executive officer, Prasanth Kumar said: “Madhvi has a proven track record of delivering innovation and education that moves the dial for the business. She is the perfect choice to lead the GroupM South Asia talent team and to lead us into the next phase of our growth. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Rohit Suri for his commitment and efforts in helping build the talent team across South Asia. We greatly appreciate his contributions and wish him the best.”

Talking about her new role, Pahwa said: “Our employee promise has been to make Mindshare the place where you do your best work, and it has certainly been true for me. The people, priorities, and culture just come together almost magically to bring out the best in you. I am grateful and proud to be part of the GroupM network that has given me growth opportunities across multiple agencies and geographic remits spanning global, regional, and markets while supporting flexibility and personal priorities. I am super excited for the next chapter for GroupM India.”
