MUMBAI: Ending his 28-year-long stint with Lowe Lintas, CEO Raj Gupta has announced his retirement. His replacement is yet to be announced by the network. 

Gupta was elevated to the post of CEO in April 2017. Prior to that, he had held leadership positions across departments, including media, digital, strategic planning, channel planning, business development and account management. 

About his decision to move on from the agency after a glorious stint, Raj Gupta said, “I retired in January 2020. It was an honour to have started my career at Lintas and now to have retired from there, too. It was a privilege to have served as CEO of this great institution. There is a reason for having spent so many years at Lintas; someone is always coming through here with a new adventure, a new discovery, a new idea, it made me fall in love with communications over and over again.”

He added, “Life is about the people you meet and the things you create with them. I met and worked with many inspiring colleagues who then turned either into mentors or friends. Love you all, love you Lintas so much and I am so proud to have been part of you. Cheers!”

MullenLowe Lintas Group CCO and chairman Amer Jaleel said, “Raj Gupta ended a long and illustrious career where he played multiple roles and of course ended up being CEO of Lowe Lintas. While a lot is known about Raj and his fantastic contributions to the agency and the industry, there's something he did that is not known at all, and this actually speaks for what Lintas meant to Raj and how forward-facing Raj has been as a professional. Over the last one year of his association with us, Raj actually proposed,  designed, and activated what is possibly the most integrated and comprehensive digital education programme that the industry has seen. As a direct result of Raj's hand in this and because of the role he played in bringing the Lintas Trust's contribution to educating and upgrading the entire Lintas talent force, we are today stronger and a more contemporary strategy and communications company and not just an agency. Hats off to you Raj, Thank You!”
