Madan Bahal, co-founder and managing director of Adfactors PR, will be inducted into the Page Hall of Fame at the Page Annual Conference on September 18, 2022, in Chicago. This honour recognises lifetime achievement in corporate communication by individuals who have made a significant impact on the enterprises they have served or counselled.
“Madan’s strategic and reputation management counsel is sought after by many CEOs of the most prominent Indian companies, including the Tata Group, the Mahindra Group and the Godrej Group,” said Maril Gagen MacDonald, founder and CEO of Gagen MacDonald, and chair of the Page Honors Committee. “They rely on him for guidance on the most pressing issues affecting their corporate reputation, corporate governance, sustainability and business strategy, including virtually every major merger and acquisition transaction in recent years.”
“Madan is at the top of the list of those who corporate leaders in India rely on for advice on how to deal with the complex business and reputational issues they are grappling with. However, it is Madan’s commitment to advancing the profession that is particularly admirable. For more than two decades, he has personally undertaken the challenge of helping professionals across India understand how to evolve to a holistic strategic approach that mirrors the Page Principles,” said Peter Debreceny, VP of International at Page. “He has organised symposia for corporate practitioners around the country, a clear indication of his commitment to training for his own people and for advancing the profession in India.”
Recent inductees to the Page Hall of Fame include PR Pioneer and Civil Rights Leader Ofield Dukes, Maril Gagen MacDonald, founder and CEO of Gagen MacDonald and Dave Samson, Vice Chairman of Corporate Affairs at Edelman.
