He will be based out of the agency's Gurgaon office. Ahluwalia's last stint was with Contract Advertising where he handled brands such as Microsoft, Ten Sports and JK Tyre.
With over 20 years of cross-category, cross-platform experience along with a diverse set of exposure spanning sales, marketing, photography, martial arts, and naturally, creative, Ahluwalia is all set to lead the charge for the agency.
