Dentsu Aegis Network has expanded the role of Rohit Ohri, who will now become CEO Dentsu Asia Pacific covering all markets in the region, excluding Dentsus home territory of Japan.
Ohri previously led Dentsu in India and Asia Pacific South. He will relocate from Delhi to Singapore for his new role.
Hiroaki Charlie Sano, executive officer of Dentsu Inc and CEO of the Dentsu Branded Agencies within Dentsu Aegis Network, said: Dentsu is an agency network with a long standing history and a strong footprint in Asia Pacific.
[Ohri] shares our creative ambition and strong vision for Dentsu and the way we work with our clients. Im delighted he will be taking on a more central position within the network to help guide the business outside of Japan.
Nick Waters CEO Dentsu Aegis Network Asia Pacific, added: [Ohri] has done a fabulous job transforming Dentsu in India. Across Asia, Dentsu has an extraordinary track record of innovation and as the largest agency in the region has an unmatched depth and breadth of capabilities.
Sano-san and myself are really looking forward to working more closely with [Ohri] to unleash the full potential of the business.
