PerceptH has brought on Ryan Menezes as Chief Creative Officer. He moves from McCann Erickson, where he was Executive Creative Director.
Confirming the development, Menezes said, “My vision of creativity and how I would like to take it forward in an agency set-up matched with that of Harry (Harinder Singh), Prabhakar (Mundkur) and Ayan’s (Chakraborty) vision. Percept is an agency hungry to do more in creativity and I am looking forward to that.”
At McCann, Menezes was responsible for many wins, including the Jet Airways, Etisalat, Raymond Parx, Nirlep and Nirav Modi Jewellery accounts. He even fetched gold at the London International Awards and had several works as Cannes finalists. This year, he is on the Cyber Jury at Cannes.
