Maxus makes two new appointments at experiential marketing and ESP units
MUMBAI: Global marketing communications consultancy Maxus has made two key appointments at its specialist units. While Vidur Patney has joined as the head of National Director Experiential Marketing, Pooja Verma is named head of Maxus ESP.
Vidur joins Maxus from Globox Media Private Limited. As a founder in a start-up of an experiential marketing company, he was responsible for the day to day running of the firm along with everything that went into building the business and developing new clients as well as executing projects. Some of his key achievements at Globox include managing all TVS Racing initiatives for the last two years at the BIC, MMSC and the KMS racing tracks and conducting over 70 Apache Pro Performance Stunt Shows across India.
In a career spanning eighteen years, Vidur has worked with leading agencies like Dentsu Communications, Encompass Events and 212 Traders. He has handled important and significant clients in all his earlier stints and brings to the table a proven ability to manage key account relationships and large-scale projects.
For nearly a decade and a half, Verma has been involved in building engagement as a part of content strategy through communication, branding, marketing and citizenship initiatives. She has worked for leading multinationals including Disney, BASF and Make-A-Wish Foundation. In her last role, Pooja was director of marketing and communication for Make-A-Wish based in Singapore. She also consulted independently for brands in India and overseas for their content marketing and multi-platform content needs.
Maxus South Asia managing director Kartik Sharma said “The appointments of Vidur Patney and Pooja Verma reflect Maxus’ commitment to attracting the best and brightest talent to our agency. They both are reliable leaders with robust backgrounds in experiential marketing and content marketing respectively. Both of them will fit very well within our strongly established client-driven culture and marketing culture and we are sure they will achieve even higher success with Maxus.”
Elaborating on his new role, Vidur Patney said, “The media landscape is possibly at its most dynamic state today. It’s a time of rapid and big changes. With the vision that Maxus has, and the kind of work that they do, my decision making became that much easier. Maxus is going from strength to strength.”
Talking about her new appointment, Verma added, “Maxus ESP is in a unique position to tell our client’s stories through differentiated content and associations with leading entertainment, sports and live properties. As MAXUS ESP gears up to the next level, I am privileged to lead this award winning team in its mission. I look forward to utilising all that I have learnt working with multinational brands in enabling the team to build an imaginative and successful body work for our clients.”
