Balwani will replace Sanjeev Jasani who is set to join Cheil India as digital head.
Namrata Balwani has joined OgilvyOne Worldwide as senior vice president and Delhi head.
Balwani, who was business group head at Maxus (Group M) earlier, has worked on brands like VIP Luggage, Pidilite, Platinum Guild, SOTC, Disney Channel, Tata Motors, AXN and Franklin Templeton. She had started her career at Contract Advertising and has 16 years of experience. Balwani will be replacing Sanjeev Jasani at the agency. Jasani, as reported earlier, is serving his notice period and will be joining Cheil India as digital head later this month.
"Our Delhi business is doing very well, in terms of business wins and awards both. Namrata is the right person to head the team. She will bring fresh energy to the place. Her focus will be the same as Ogilvy's - to drive the digital business forward," added Vikram Menon, president and country head, OgilvyOne Worldwide and Neo@Ogilvy.
