The World: Chennai - Burnett hires D'Souza as Chennai vice-president

Leo Burnett India has appointed Kevin D'Souza as the vice-president of its Chennai branch.

D'Souza is moving to the agency from Saatchi & Saatchi in Uganda, where he was the managing director. Before that, he worked at Lowe in East Africa and Saatchis in Mumbai.

D'Souza said: "I spent my initial years at Rediffusion DY&R and Saatchi & Saatchi in Mumbai, so I am no stranger to the advertising scene in the region. While geographical aspects may vary, certain fundamentals of the advertising profession remain the same: to deliver value for money, in the most efficient way possible and with little wastage."
