After a stint of two years, Priti Nair has quit Bartle Bogle Hegarty (BBH) India as Managing Partner. She had joined BBH India in July 2008 as National Creative Director, along with Subhash Kamath and Partha Sinha, when the multinational agency had set up its India operations. Nair has confirmed the development.
Commenting on her decision to move, Nair said, “I have decided to move out of advertising for some time now. In the meanwhile, I will take some time to decide what is next, but would definitely explore my own abilities to do something different.”
It may be recalled that in November 2008, BBH India had commenced its operations with Managing Partners Nair, Kamath and Sinha at the helm, who were looking after the creative, business and strategy functions of the organisation and reporting directly to the BBH headquarters in London.
BBH Mumbai office was the latest opening in BBH’s independent network. In addition to the London headquarters, the agency has offices in North America, Latin America and Asia.
Nair has spent more than 17 years in the advertising industry. Prior to joining BBH India, she was associated with Grey Worldwide as its National Creative Director. Previously, she was Executive Creative Director at Lowe Mumbai and Delhi, and had also spent time at Chaitra Leo Burnett (now Leo Burnett).
Throughout her career, Nair has worked on over 40 brands, including GreenPly, Camlin, Idea Cellular and the list now includes BBH India’s clients – Marico, Rediff.com, and Vaseline, among others. She has also won several national and international awards, including wins at Promax, Asia Pacific Advertising Festival, New York Festival, as well as Abby and Clio Awards.
