Dentsu Webchutney has announced that Gautam Reghunath, CEO & PG Aditiya, CCO will be leaving their positions early next year to set up their own venture. Sidharth Rao, the agency’s founder will take over once more.
“Gautam & PG have been the two most defining hires in our history. As a founder, you want your people to find their calling at the company you build, and the legacy the two of them leave behind is the best possible example of this,” said Rao.
“From joining at entry-level positions in 2010 and 2012 respectively, and rising to the very top through hard work, passion and just simply being the best in the business at their jobs. It’s a story that makes me believe that we’ve created an organisation where anyone can shine. And now, they have a chance to do it for themselves as creative entrepreneurs.”
Gautam and PG will continue to work with Rao to ensure a smooth transition which should finish early next year.
“There is no other agency or network in the country where we would have had the chance to build our careers like we have at dentsu and at Webchutney. We’ve spent nearly 90% of our careers here, so moving on is not a decision we’re taking lightly,” said Gautam & PG.
“Our personal views of what success, failure, and everything else in between looks like have been shaped at Webchutney and the people that we’ve had the privilege of working with & leading here. We’re so proud and thankful for how it’s all panned out.”
