Meanwhile, as per an Economic Times report, Airtel has handed over CMO responsibilities to Vani Venkatesh. Venkatesh joined Airtel as CEO - Retail in November 2016 from Abbott Nutrition.

Before Abbott, Venkatesh worked with McKinsey & Company as a consultant for nine years, HUL for three years and Price Waterhouse for around three years.

Reportedly, Pudipeddi has cited family obligations as a reason behind his decision to move on from the telecom giant just a year after joining.

Pudipeddi was associated with P&G for over a decade; he resigned from the FMCG conglomerate as vice-president - North America Oral care in 2017.
