To kick-start operations, Taproot Dentsu Gurgaon has a strong team in place, led by Harjot Singh Narang [general manager], Anand Murty [head of strategy] and Titus Upputuru [head of creative]. Going forward, infusing new talent into the system will remain a key priority for ensuring the sharpness of the offering. Dentsu One will now be a division of Taproot Dentsu.
Commenting on this development, Agnello Dias, chairman and chief creative officer, Taproot Dentsu, says in a press release, "We are excited with this development. Delhi NCR is a high growth market and we are looking forward to working with a host of interesting new clients and brands. Almost since inception, we have been working with some very important and iconic brands in this market like Airtel, Times of India, Marico and more recently with Dulux and Coca Cola India. So we have been more than familiar with this geography. By opening up a strong new front here, we are building further on that experience and strength."
