Hari Krishnan, who & #BANNER1 & # heads the Delhi branch for Grey Worldwide, has decided to move on. He is all set to join another WPP agency, JWT, as vice-president on the Pepsi business starting next month.

This position in JWT has been vacant since Hemant Misra recently quit the agency to join Publicis India as COO.

Krishnan has been with Grey Worldwide for the last four years. He joined the agency in 2003 as client servicing director on the Samsung business, and was elevated as branch head in January 2006. At Grey, Krishnan has worked on several high profile accounts such as Suzuki Motorcycles and Wrigley India's Orbit.

Krishnan has spent around 15 years in the advertising industry. He started as a management trainee with TBWA Anthem (now TBWA India), in 1992. Soon, he moved to Bates Clarion (now Bates David Enterprise) and completed his first stint there as an account executive. In 1996, he moved to Ogilvy & Mather, where he worked for two years. Later, he rejoined Bates and was with the agency for close to five years. During his second stint, he worked in Alok Agrawal and Radharani Mitra's team.

Krishnan is excited about his new role, especially about the fact that he will get to head an important brand such as Pepsi. "Pepsi is an exciting and significantly large brand, and I am looking forward to working on it."

Rohit Ohri, managing partner, JWT Delhi, says, "There have been a few new challenges for the Pepsi brand recently. Hari's understanding of creating surround brand experiences will be invaluable as we face the communication challenges of tomorrow."
