Jose Leon has been named Chief Operating Officer at digital marketing agency Indigo Consulting, following three years as President of the Publicis-Groupe-owned firm. He reports to CEO Rajesh Ghatge.

Leon joined Indigo Consulting as a President, tasked with supporting the consulting firm’s transition into a data-focused market insights and digital solutions firm. According to Ghatge, Leon has been instrumental in the firm’s success since he joined, justifying his new elevated role.

Before joining Indigo Consulting, Leon worked at a number of major brands including Onida, Xerox and Adobe. His experience lies primarily in the sales sphere, and he has operated at the executive level for more than a decade now. During his five years at Xerox, Leon was the Head of Strategic Alliances, where he had to work with partners to develop growth and revenue strategies.

At Adobe, Leon was initially Head of Digital Marketing Strategic Alliances, before taking over as a Director in the firm’s South Asia practice. Leveraging his vast expertise in the digital and marketing space, Leon will now help drive growth at Indigo Consulting. According to Ghatge, the firm is expanding in reach and scope, and Leon will be a key part of this process.Jose Leon, COO at Indigo Consulting“Jose has played a pivotal role in introducing new services and growing marquee businesses. Given the unprecedented challenges that we face in the business environment, we feel that we are just in the right place to add value to our clients. We are launching sector-specific technology enabled products and solutions across platforms fintech, omnichannel and content velocity. It is just the time for Jose to take over a larger role and lead the next wave of innovation and growth at Indigo Consulting,” said Ghatge.

The firm appears to be driving forward in a number of key areas. In April, Indigo Consulting bolstered its creative capacity with the appointment of advertising specialist Burzin Mehta as National Creative Director. This is in addition to a string of new appointments last year across the firm’s various offices in the country.

Leon, who has watched the firm’s strong progress in recent years, expressed his excitement at taking the firm forward. According to him, the range of challenges presented by Covid-19 have only strengthened the firm’s value proposition in the market.

“It has been an exciting journey thus far and in the new role, I look forward to continuing our relentless drive to deliver excellence across our product and service offerings. The next wave will see a launch of a series of innovative products and further deepening of expertise across sectors. The current challenge has deepened our resolve to partner our clients and help them cope and win,” he said.
