Dentsu Webchutney, the digital agency from the Dentsu Aegis Network, has promoted Gautam Reghunath as senior vice-president and branch head.
In his new role, Reghunath will lead the agency's 40-member team in Bengaluru, and will work on accounts such as Flipkart, Dailyhunt, Helpchat, and Quikr. He will report directly to Sidharth Rao, CEO, Dentsu Webchutney, and help in business development besides strengthening the agency's creative and content production capabilities. Reghunath was earlier vice-president at the agency.
Confirming Reghunath's new assignment, Rao says, "Under (Gautam) Reghunath's leadership, our South India business continues to evolve at tremendous speed, having grown 200 per cent over last year. From what was a five-member office in early 2015, we are now a 40-people-strong team in Bengaluru. It is imperative that we have the strongest possible leadership there to take us to new heights. Reghunath has an ambitious vision for the company and is a powerful advocate of putting young talent at the forefront of our business."
Talking about his new role, Reghunath says, "I have been at Dentsu Webchutney through and through, and this is a responsibility I am proud to be tasked with. The last one year has been great -- being ranked number one, great new clients, and moving into our new space in Bengaluru."
Talking about the organisation's growth trajectory, Reghunath adds, "We have embarked on an ambitious growth path, not just from a business perspective, but also as individual creative professionals. The agency is brimming with young creative and leadership talent, and it will be a privilege to lead them in our endeavour to continue evolving as a new-age agency, relevant for 2017 and relevant for our clients."
Reghunath joined Dentsu Webchutney's Mumbai office in 2010 at a junior servicing position and over the last two years had been tasked with building the agency's Bengaluru operations. He has previously worked with L&K Saatchi and Saatchi.
Dentsu Webchutney's clients include Flipkart, Airtel, TI Cycles, and Red Bull across digital marketing, online video content, website design, mobile marketing, and social media. The agency has a workforce of over 200 digital marketing professionals across New Delhi, Mumbai, and Bengaluru.
