Commenting on Indrajeet's appointment, Simi Sabhaney said, “Indrajeet is one of our finest managers who leads from the front, a mentor to many and a true partner to clients alike. In the many years I have known him, his ‘never-say-die attitude’ and passion to win has been a driving force for his team. Equally adept at ‘farming’ and donning the ‘hunting’ hat, he has led and consolidated significant new business wins for the agency. I believe, in his new role, Indrajeet will take the agency to greater heights.”

Speaking on his new role, Indrajeet Mookherjee added, “The last four years at Dentsu India have been career defining in ways I had never imagined. And now we are faced with a new normal where we will see a paradigm shift in the way brands present themselves. It is in times like these when being effective, intuitive and most importantly, demonstrating true partnership with our clients, will be the marker in defining client-agency relationships and I hope to play my part in it.”
