D Ramakrishna (Ramki), Vice-President and Executive Creative Director, JWT, Mumbai has put in his papers. Confirming the resignation, Ramakrishna said, “Having learnt so much, this is the right time to go on and try doing something on my own, which may not necessarily be about advertising.”
Elaborating on the reasons for his decision, Ramakrishna said that having spent so many years in the industry, it was a good time for him to pursue something on his own. Nothing is confirmed at the moment, though.
Ramakrishna further said, “I want to take my own time and try to do different things. I may also take someone’s help if need be.” He added that it was too early to divulge anything more than this.
It is also interesting to note that very recently Agnello Dias joined JWT as Vice-President and Executive Creative Director. We don’t know whether this has got anything to do with Ramki’s decision.
