Pooja Jauhari, Group CEO of VMLY&R India, has stepped down from her position. Jauhari, one of the co-founders of The Glitch, which merged with VML&R in 2020 posted on LinkedIn about her departure saying “Thank you universe, for this beautiful phase.”
She went on to write:
“11 beautiful years of being part of building The Glitch with Varun, Rohit + my brilliant colleagues and friends. 5 years of that spent driving it’s integration within Mark Read ‘s brave new WPP & 1 year of that spent in leading 4 companies to create 1 big, diverse and prominent new VMLY&R India lead by a smashing EXCO, the perfect home for Glitch.
My work is not complete, as over the course of this year and some part of next year I will continue to work with the exco to drive what VMLY&R is known for, delivering a connected marketing ecosystem for our clients.
My role was and is to ensure stability and growth for both Glitch and the newly formed VMLY&R. When this is completed I will move on to the next phase of my life and handover to my friend and colleague Saurabh Saksena.
Regarding her future plans, Jauhari said: “Post this, as planned, retirement from advertising and experimenting with something new is on the cards.”
All three co-founders of The Glitch have now moved on from the agency.
