Plus, he shares my love for poetry.

Commenting on the appointment, Srija Chatterjee, MD – Publicis India said: “Ishrath comes with a rich creative background having handled a host of brands across multiple agencies.

Sharing his views on joining the agency and also his role, Ishrath said: “There are but a few times in your life when you get an opportunity to make a difference. To change, create, shape and mould things, into something extraordinary. To me, this is one of those times. Because Publicis India, is on the brink of something special. The market is ripe for the vision that the agency has. And I, therefore, count myself lucky. With a powerhouse leadership team in Bobby Pawar, Srija Chatterjee, and Ravpreet Ganesh, there are great things in store in the days to come. My mandate is simple: take Publicis to the next level. And with their support, I hope to be able to do that, and more.”
