Indigo Consulting, a digital agency from the stable of Leo Burnett, has appointed Jose Leon as president. Leon comes in from Adobe, where he was responsible for the digital marketing business across multiple domains - such as BFSI, retail, education, automotive, among others - in collaboration with digital agencies.
At Indigo, the strategy, technology, project management, delivery and operations teams, across Mumbai and Delhi, will report directly to Leon.
He will report to Rajesh Ghatge, chief executive officer, Indigo Consulting, and will be based in the agency's Delhi office.
Ghatge, says, in a press release, "Over the last few months, we have been executing a plan to evolve 'design and build' services at Indigo Consulting. We have 17 years of credentials in building and managing digital platforms and assets across web, mobile and e-commerce, for large national and international clients. We are investing in leadership talent across business consulting, analytics and UX, thereby expanding capacities to partner clients across their digital transformation journey."

About his new role at Indigo Consulting, Leon, says, "This is an amazing opportunity. The TAM (Total Addressable Market) for Martec alone is between $32B-$40B here-and-now, and Indigo Consulting, being an integrated digital agency, has capabilities across all spheres of this market opportunity. We are continously re-skilling and re-investing in our people in addition to bolstering our partnerships across the spectrum, from 'Design Thinking' and 'Augmented Reality' right up to 'Machine Learning', 'Real-Time Analytics' and 'Block Chain'. I am looking forward to leading Indigo Consulting's 'design and build' function, and helping it reach the vast potential I see in it."
