Marina Maher Communications Elevates Chief Innovation Officer, Rema Vasan, to President

NEW YORK, March 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Marina Maher Communications (MMC), the agency that has grown from a female founder with a vision to a PRovoke Agency of the Decade, is taking its next step forward by promoting Rema Vasan to President, effective immediately. Vasan, recently named a top industry innovator, will harness the entrepreneurial spirit that fueled MMC's rise and ensure clients stay ahead of a rapidly changing marketplace.

Reporting to founder and CEO Marina Maher, Vasan will lead with the future-forward mindset that's energized her to think ahead of the industry in her own career.

"Rema has consistently anticipated what's next, as evidenced by her non-linear career trajectory across advertising, digital marketing and communications, on both the agency and client sides," said Marina Maher, when asked what first drew her to Vasan. "The explosion of digital has accelerated the transformation of our industry and Rema's diverse, digital-first expertise brings with it a strategic ability to think broadly and offer a richness of ideas and solutions."

Since joining MMC in June 2019, Vasan has proven out an innate ability to transform the way communications drives business impact for the agency's key clients, with a keen focus on relentless digital innovation grounded in data-backed performance metrics. Whether turbocharging the agency's corporate practice, delivering groundbreaking work for J&J's Road to a Vaccine program or spearheading the reinvention of an audience-first influencer marketing model tied to sales and script attribution, Vasan consistently challenges the status quo to deliver meaningful business results for clients in a constantly evolving industry.  

"As someone who has lived and worked through the transformation of the marketing industry, I was always impressed with MMC's uncanny ability to stay ahead of cultural trends and outpace the speed of change." said Vasan. "When the unique start-up spirit and future-forward ambition is combined with talent as diverse in experience and expertise as you find at MMC, magic happens. I'm honored to continue my journey at an agency with an incredible 37-year legacy whose vision and ambition sets the tone for the future."

As President, Vasan's remit will include oversight of the agency's growing healthcare, corporate and consumer practices; in addition to sizeable and critical disciplines such as earned media, creative, digital innovation and business strategy & analytics. Vasan will be laser-focused on driving business results, whether with social content capabilities that build cultural currency for brands, predictive analytics that enable a performance marketing approach, or transforming influencer marketing for the healthcare space. As a first gen immigrant, DEI is a critical priority for Vasan, who will closely partner with the Chief People Officer to continue to build a truly inclusive culture that will best serve MMC's talent and clients.   

Prior to her time at MMC, Vasan led global marketing communications for some of the world's biggest and most recognized brands at Procter & Gamble, Pfizer, GlaxoSmithKline and Unilever, across Asia, Europe, and North America. She is behind breakthrough campaigns that have been recognized with Effies, SABREs, PRWeek Awards and Cannes Lions.
