Raj Kamble quits BBH India; Russell Barrett named Managing Partner

In just a few months, BBH India’s Managing Partner Raj Kamble has quit the organisation to pursue other “career opportunities”. The agency has named Russell Barrett as the Managing Partner now.

In a prepared statement, Sir John Hegarty said, “It’s always sad when great creative people leave you, but it’s even greater when you can promote an outstanding creative leader from within. Russell Barrett has created most of our best work and put BBH India on the creative map. I believe with his creative leadership our Mumbai office will go from strength to strength.”

Russell Barrett, who joined BBH India in April 2010 as Executive Creative Director, will join managing partners Subhash Kamath and Partha Sinha in leading the India operations. In the past year, Barrett has led the team to create many talked about campaigns on diverse clients like Google Chrome, TVS Wego, World Gold Council and VAT 69, among others.

Barrett said, “It’s a real honour to have earned the confidence of Sir John Hegarty and the management team. I’m really excited about stepping up as a partner at BBH India. I’m quite convinced that we’re perfectly poised to take BBH to the next level in India: sticking to the BBH vision of being the agency that stands for great strategic thinking and outstanding creativity.”
