NEW DELHI — Expanding its Asia-Pacific footprint, Allison+Partners is opening offices in India and Australia, bringing to 10 the number of operations the agency has across the region.

Pranav Kumar will head Indian offices in New Delhi and Mumbai as managing director, a job that entails overseeing business growth and operations in addition to working with clients. For the last six years, Kumar has been managing director of Bite’s India operations.

The Allison+Partners office in Sydney will be run by Michelle Rovere, also as managing director. Her two-decade career included founding two local consulting businesses and working with agencies including Burson-Marsteller, Hausmann Communications and Howorth Communications.

“Pranav and Michelle are both seasoned marketing communications veterans with deep integrated experience, and are already adding tremendous value to our teams and clients,” said Allison+Partners co-founder and global COO Andy Hardie-Brown.

“Our expansion into India and Australia marks another important milestone for Allison+Partners’ ability to provide broad support for clients operating in Asia-Pacific and worldwide,” he said.
