In a recent development, Cheil India has appointed Sanjeev Jasani as head of digital. Prior to joining Cheil India, Jasani was associated with Ogilvy Delhi as its senior vice president and digital head. He has been at the helm of affairs at OgilvyOne for the past nine years, leading OgilvyOne to greater heights under his leadership. Jasani comes with rich industry experience, having worked for clients like BMW, Nokia, Sony and American Express in the past. Also, his work at JWT, Contract and O&M has been widely recognised over time.

Commenting on the appointment, Shiv Sethuraman, group president, Cheil South-West Asia says, "We are thrilled to welcome someone of Sanjeev's talent and calibre on board. Our digital team is already one of the biggest in the country and we have a demonstrated record of producing excellent work. We were on the lookout for a leader who could help us take it to the next level and in Sanjeev, we've found that leader."

Speaking about his appointment, Jasani says, "Digital Marketing is a lot like Jazz. Its beauty is not in the predictable notes, it's in the improvisation. A digital agency today needs to be open and hungry, let go and adjust quickly to the ever-changing consumer. Cheil India has shown the desire to walk this path. I'm very excited to be part of this hungry and nimble organization."

Headquartered in Seoul, South Korea, Cheil Worldwide claims to be the 15th largest agency group in the world by revenues, with operations in 40 countries.
