Vijay Jacob, who recently put in his papers as Senior VP, South and Head of Bates141 Chennai, is slated to join Grey Bangalore as Vice President, South. This development has been confirmed by Jishnu Sen, COO, Grey India. It is learnt that Jacob will move his base from Chennai to Bangalore now.
Jacob has been with Bates 141 for close to four years. He has been handling clients such as CavinKare and Apollo Hospital Enterprises from the Chennai office.
Jacob began his career in advertising with Mudra Communications as Brand Director in April 2002. After spending two years in Mudra, he moved to Grey Worldwide as Branch Head of G3, Chennai. In that sense, it is sort of a homecoming for Jacob. He has also worked with Eveready Industries, Baazee.com (eBay) and Fountain Head in the course of his career.
