Mumbai: GroupM India on Thursday announced the appointment of Priti Murthy as president, GroupM Services India. In her new role, Murthy would also be part of the GroupM India executive committee.

As president of GroupM Services, she will be leading the centre of delivery excellence that comprises biddable, non-biddable, analytics, and reporting. Along with her strong leadership team, Murthy would work closely with agencies to understand their needs, incorporating best-in-class delivery metrics with ‘improvise and improve’ as the approach to continued excellence, said the statement.

“It is a homecoming for Priti and strengthening of GroupM India leadership team with yet another remarkable industry leader. Priti’s product mindset powered by a unique blend of experience in setting and executing an organisation-wide vision will enrich the GroupM teams alike," said  Prasanth Kumar.

“It is one of the best eras in the media industry, revival and rejuvenation being the focus. I am delighted to join GroupM, to walk the path to the future transformation of GroupM offerings in the marketplace and magnify the operational excellence that it is known for," stated Murthy. "With GroupM's focus on creating the best in class and house of excellence, my role will be to bring in the right mix of talent, process, and tech to ensure quality assurance and continuous improvement for biddable and non-biddable media for our partners and clients.
