Much seems to be happening at Rediffusion Y&R. Amitava Sinha has put in his papers after 12 years with the agency. Sinha was serving as the chief operating officer.

Meanwhile, Suman Verma, who moves in from JWT (where she worked for 22 years), has joined Rediffusion as head, Delhi operations. Verma will join as head of operations, Delhi and will report directly to Dhunji S. Wadia, president, Rediffusion Y&R. "I'm delighted to welcome Suman to Rediffusion-Y&R. She brings the right mix of talent, experience and enthusiasm that we seek to inject into our talent pool. Her strong leadership skills will enhance the quality of the work that we do for our clients and add value to their brands," says Wadia.

Says Verma, "Leaving the comfort of JWT was a tough call, but the thought of joining Rediffusion-Y&R and teaming up with Dhunji was exciting. I look forward to the new challenges ahead."

Verma has worked on brands such as Horlicks, Boost, Quaker Oats and ITC Tobacco as well as Tata Steel and Zee TV Bangla. An MBA from Kolkata's Jadavpur University, Verma's last assignment was as vice president and executive business director, JWT India - she was leading the GSK and Hamdard account.
