Announcing the elevation, Mehta (pictured left) said, "Ameer is just the right mix of Vintage and Vision. In a time when the practice of PR is more important than ever, but the business of PR is getting highly commoditized; he's the kind of leader the industry needs. PR is an integral part of our re-bundled offering and GolinOpinion occupies a great position in the market today. Reinventing yourself from a position of strength is a rare and valuable opportunity and I'm delighted to have Ameer lead that agenda for us."
Speaking on his promotion Ismail said, "I am so proud to be a part of this great institution - the MullenLowe Lintas Group and am looking forward to this new phase in my journey with a renewed focus and dedication towards delivering great work. GolinOpinion is recognized as a premium and leading player in the PR industry. We have today some of the best brands represented in our portfolio. As the business evolves, I am tasked to work closely with our management team to take GolinOpinion to even greater heights by building scale and new competencies that will continue the brave work that has been our trademark so far."
