Elsie Nanji

Elsie Nanji is managing partner at Red Lion Publicis and one of IMPACT 50's Most Influential Women in Indian media, advertising and marketing in 2012.

Elsie Nanji is managing partner at Red Lion, the design wing of Publicis
Communications in India, and is a multiple award winner at both Indian and 
international award shows, including the Clio Awards, Cannes Lions, D&AD,
 Spikes Asia and The One Show.

Nanji has represented India as a returning jury member in several international
 award shows, including D&AD, the Clio Awards, AdFest and more recently as
 part of the design jury at Spikes Asia 2009 and the Cannes Lions in 2010.

She is a founding partner of Ambience, an agency that has featured in top 
five creative agency lists from the very first year it opened its doors, some 20 
years ago. Ambience has since joined the Publicis Worldwide network and, in
 April 2007, Elsie had an offer to return to her passion for design to partner with
 Publicis in creating a design cell called Red Lion.

In 2011, Red Lion was voted as one of the top five design brands in the country by
 The Economic Times. Red Lion has been the winner of a gold award at Goafest,
 both a silver and gold spikes at Spikes Asia, and a silver lion at Cannes, all in the
 design category.

For five consecutive years, Elsie has run the half marathon in the Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon, and in 2009 was awarded the gold medal in her category.

 Nanji still maintains that her most rewarding creative efforts are her two children Yohaan (18) and Aria (15).
