In his new role, Prashar will oversee the global marketing function for R/GA, and will be responsible for market strategy, brand, and corporate communications. He will also join the Executive Leadership Team, reporting to Chief Executive Officer Sean Lyons.

“Why didn’t someone introduce me to Ash sooner?! We connected immediately. Ash brings over fifteen years of experience to R/GA and is brilliant at finding the stories in the work and in the people,” said Lyons.

“Our agency, industry, and society have shifted tremendously over the past year. Ash’s thoughtful, strategic advocacy and service to others make him an ideal shepherd of our values and our purpose of helping clients design businesses and brands for a more human future.”

Outside of his professional role in R/GA, Prashar is deeply committed to ensuring fair treatment of people impacted by the justice system and advancing prisoner’s rights globally, with the ultimate goal of prison abolition.
