New Delhi: Advertising firm FCB Ulka has appointed Rohit Ohri as group chairman and chief executive, the company said in a statement on Tuesday. Carter Murray, worldwide CEO of FCB, announced the leadership change, effective January 2016.

Ohri succeeds Nagesh Alai, who will become global vice-chairman at FCB, working on special global initiatives for Murray. Ohri joins FCB from Japanese ad agency Dentsu. He was CEO of Dentsu Asia Pacific and, previously, executive chairman of Dentsu India Group.

Ohri joins FCB Ulka with 26 years of experience in the industry. Before Dentsu, he headed the Delhi office of JWT India ad advertising agency that is part of WPP Inc.

Ohri will serve as a member of FCB’s global operating committee and report directly to Murray in New York. He will be one of the CEOs guiding the global company.

“FCB has gone back to its roots and is reigniting its brand essence under Carter’s leadership. The opportunity to partner with him, in what could be the most defining time in the history of FCB convinced me to quit my regional assignment and come back to India,” said Ohri.

Ohri will be supported by FCB Ulka’s management board, including Shashi Sinha, executive director, Lodestar Media and CEO of Mediabrands; Niteen Bhagwat, executive director, Interface Communications and Asterii Analytics; MG Parameswaran, executive director of FCB Ulka, Mumbai and Bengaluru, FCBi, Cogito; and Arvind Wable, executive director, FCB Ulka, Delhi.
