Creativeland Asia appoints Neil Flory as ECD

Following its foray in the southern region, Creativeland Asia has been sprucing up its staff strength. The agency has roped in Neil Flory as Executive Creative Director. He will be working closely with Raj Kurup, Chairman & CCO, and Vikram Gaikwad, Partner and Executive Creative Director, Creativeland Asia.

With this appointment, Flory returns to India from his stint with O&M Sydney. In his new role, he will be based in Mumbai. On his new role, Flory said, “Coming back to India was never part of my plans. But the opportunity to join Creativeland Asia was something I couldn’t pass up. There was a time when Raj and I would go to a bar every Saturday and make plans to start an agency. An agency that truly believed in creativity and thinking and didn’t just throw it around because it sounded cool. Creativeland is that dream and so much more.”

Commenting on Flory’s appointment, Kurup said, “Neil and I go back a long way. He is one of the most talented creative people I have ever known. I’m extremely delighted to have him on board. Neil’s mandate is to continue the good work and take the creative output to the next level and make it world-class.”

Gaikwad said “Neil’s coming on board will only strengthen the team and the creative output at Creativeland. His international exposure will be of tremendous value.”

Flory began his career with Mudra in 1997. He has also worked with agencies like Wunderman Singapore, Enterprise Nexus (Mumbai and Bangalore), O&M Singapore and The Works Sydney.

Along the way, Flory has explored other areas of creativity as well. He has designed and made fish tanks that have been featured in ‘Inside Outside’ magazine. He also runs a clothing label for which he designs T-shirts and jeans. Besides this, he also devotes all his free time making music, and lately, has also been writing stories for children.
