The amalgamation will draw together over 16 companies under one roof for the first time with more than 3,800 staff moving to the Mumbai campus by late August, and Gurugram following next year.
Named BAY99, the 380,000 square feet Mumbai campus is situated close to the city’s international airport and will be occupied on a 10-year lease. It will provide staff with a range of facilities including a rooftop terrace, lounge, cafe and library.
WPP country manager for India, CVL Srinivas, said: “We support some of the biggest brand names in India and more than ever, clients want to be connected to easy processes and solutions, as well as a complete suite of services. The new Campus means our teams will have increased access to each other’s expertise and this will go far in enabling our talent to do their very best work for clients.”
WPP is in the midst of a global consolidation drive which has already seen it merge a number of its companies in the UK, US and APAC.
