New Chair for The Marketing Society India

June 2020: The Marketing Society India is delighted to announce the appointment of Juhie Gorwara, Head of Corporate Marketing at Philips Indian Subcontinent, as its new Chair in India.

Juhie will take over from outgoing Chair Virginia Sharma, Vice President, Brand Solutions, JioSaavn who has held the position since the launch of the Society in India in 2017.

Juhie has over 18 years of senior marketing experience; prior to joining Philips, she was Global Marketing Leader at Aricent (now Altran, part of Capgemini group) and before this she held leadership roles at IBM, Avaya and Yahoo.


Her exceptional experience as a marketing leader made her a perfect fit for the role.

She said, “Over the last 3 years, I have enjoyed being a part of the Society and truly believe in the Brave Agenda that we are driving. I look forward to taking it to the next level in India from here on, with our board that has developed into a group of like-minded friends over time.”

Sophie Devonshire, new global CEO of The Marketing Society said, “I’m absolutely delighted that Juhie will be leading the Society in India which is such an important part of our global network.

“She has everything needed to succeed in this role - a passion for marketing and enthusiasm for the work of The Marketing Society and our industry. I’m certain she will build on the brilliant work that our outgoing chair Virginia has done and on behalf of the wider Marketing Society family, I’d like to say a big thank you to her for her outstanding contribution over past three years.”

Established 60 years ago in London, The Marketing Society has evolved from a UK-based organisation to a progressive and influential global network of over 3,000 senior marketing leaders.

Through its brave agenda (launched in 2017) the Society has broken down barriers, tackled taboos and created comfortable spaces for uncomfortable conversations.

This unique point of differentiation allows the Society and its members to talk about the things that matter like mental health, gender bias and race discrimination as well as the day to day challenges facing CMOs and our industry including global recessions, big data, digital disruption, AI etc – all seen through a brave lens.

The Marketing Society India based in New Delhi, offers membership to senior marketing leaders. Benefits will include:

  • Six complimentary events in New Delhi each year and access to a global calendar of 100 + events
  • Access to professional development programme - the Ones To Watch – designed for the rising stars in your team
  • One complimentary entry to their acclaimed Brave Awards for your organisation
  • Full access to the newly relaunched exclusive members-only website
  • Quarterly issue of the exclusive newly launched digital publication EMPOWER and monthly content round up – The Edit.
