Contract Advertising has roped in Manoj Jacob as Executive Creative Director, Contract Bangalore. He joins back Contract after a gap of six years and has been entrusted with ensuring quality creative work at the Contract Bangalore office. Jacob will be reporting to Ashish Chakravarty NCD, Contract Advertising.
At Contract, Jacob will be partnering with Monojit Ray, who recently joined the agency as the Bangalore Head.
Prior to rejoining Contract, Jacob ran his own creative consultancy firm, where he worked with clients such as Nova Specialty Surgery, Apollo Hospitals, Simply South Restaurant and Abs Fitness, to name a few.
“I am very happy to have Manoj on board as ECD of our Bangalore office. He is extremely passionate about his craft, very driven, and a hands-on kind of leader. Having worked with him in the past, I won’t be surprised if he dives straight into the deep end from day one itself. It is a challenging role, but I am positive he will shine,” said Ashish Chakravarty.
On his return to Contract, Jacob said, “It’s an awesome new team across disciplines that is getting together at Contract Advertising, and I’m very happy to be a part of it.”
With an overall experience of 17 years, Jacob has worked with O&M, McCann Erickson, SSC&B, Euro RSCG Orchard, Publicis Ambience and Bates over the course of his career. He has also handled some leading brands across verticals, including IBM, Air Deccan, Cavin Kare, Mitsubishi Motors, Wipro Consumer Care and Weekender.
