MUMBAI: Advertising agency Ogilvy India has appointed Anirban Roy as head of planning for Ogilvy South with immediate effect. Roy will move to Bengaluru.

Ogilvy South president N Ramamoorthi says, “Anirban’s leadership of our planning group ticks two boxes for us. One, he is from within Ogilvy – so he’s not new to the culture of the agency. Two, he is that rare breed of planner who has worked on both brand and digital planning – both crucial to Ogilvy’s next chapter transformation.

Roy was in Ogilvy Mumbai and comes with 15 years of work experience across mainline and digital in India and APAC (Singapore, Manila). He has led brands such as Fanta, Sprite, BMW, GSK, Tata Salt, Wild Stone, United Nations, Carlsberg, Huawei to name a few. 

Ogilvy India chief strategy officer Prem Narayan mentions, “Anirban is a true Ogilvy all rounder. He has worked in our Delhi and Mumbai offices. Anirban is a great team player and is one of the finest leaders I have worked with. As Head of Planning, Anirban will partner N Ramamoorthi, Azaz, Kiran, Tithi and Mahesh. I am sure he will take Ogilvy South to greater heights.”
