The former head of brand marketing at Vedantu, Bali posted on social media that he has left the edtech platform to join the creative agency. While the confirmation was only made recently, it was revealed that the executive joined the company earlier this year, in August 2022.
His move to Ogilvy happened to coincide with the edtech platform's decision to lay off more than 400 employees in the same month. It was one of several rounds of layoffs to follow at the company.
Vedantu has reportedly been facing several issues with funding that lead to the aforementioned series of layoffs and probably a few departures for greener pastures.
Despite the problems that plagued the platform, Bali described his time with the company as fulfilling.
“I’ve always been lucky, but I’ve never felt grateful, until now,” said Bali, speaking about his journey at Vedantu.
