Gentari has appointed Dheeraj Raina (pictured) as its new chief marketing and strategic communications officer as of May this year. 

This comes shortly after he vacated his role as CEO of dentsu media in May this year after nearly two years in the position, which he announced on his LinkedIn. Prerna Mehrotra stepped into the role of CEO of media for dentsu APAC after.  

During his time at dentsu, Raina was tasked to lead all media brands under its wing - Consider iProspect, Vizeum, Carat, dentsu X, Amplifi, Posterscope, and Amnet.
