SINGAPORE — Deepa Balji is departing S4 Capital to become Asia-Pacific head of marketing at Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin’s B Capital Group.
Balji spent almost two years at Sir Martin Sorrell’s S4 Capital holding group, where she oversaw marketing and communications for Asia-Pacific.
At B Capital, she reports to chief operating officer and partner Ted Hill, who is based in the US. B Capital was formed by Saverin and former Bain Capital exec Raj Ganguly in 2015, and has raised almost $2bn across four funds.
“Working at S4 Capital has been a career defining moment for me,” said Balji. “Who gets to work at a disruptor, doubling down on growth, and a visionary like Martin Sorrell?
“Moving to B Capital is the next phase of growth in my career. The VC industry is growing and I look forward to the cross-pollination of skills within a different industry to reach innovative, business outcomes.”
Prior to S4, Balji was executive director of marketing and communications for Publicis Groupe across Asia-Pacific and the Middle East.
