Mudra has announced key additions in its senior creative cadre. Its Mumbai office will now have three creative heads, with independent leadership and brand responsibility.
Contract’s Anil Verma has joined as Executive Creative Director, Mudra Mumbai, while Jagdish Acharya, who is currently Executive Creative Director, Mudra South, will move to Mumbai. Earlier this month, Mudra had announced the appointment of Joono Simon as ECD, Mudra South. Rajesh Sonawane will lead the third group in Mumbai.
Commenting on the development, Bobby said, “Joono and Anil are prized additions to our creative team. Both are sharp, bright and have excellent advertising minds. But more importantly, they are great guys and very good leaders. Having them on board adds depth to our creative leadership team. It will be great to have Jagdish in Mumbai. His experience will be invaluable to what is a young and hungry creative team. With Rajesh, Jagdish and Anil, we have an excellent leadership team in place in Mumbai now. The next few months should be very exciting.”
“We have a large number of clients in Mumbai, all of whom need the attention of senior creative talent. We now have a great team of 50 other young people, and under Rajesh, Jagdish and Anil’s leaderships, they will bloom,” said Jude Fernandes, Executive Director, Mudra Group, and Head of Mudra Mumbai.
Verma started his career with O&M in 1995 and has worked on clients such as BBC World, Duracell, Discovery, American Express, Nokia, McDonald’s, Samsung, Dabur, Yamaha, Taj Group of Hotels and Canon, among others.
