Bates Enterprise’s Ravi Narain steps into retail space, joins Emaar-MGF as VP, Marketing

Ravi Narain, Executive Creative Director, Bates Enterprise, has quit to join real estate major Emaar-MGF as Vice-President, Marketing. At Bates Enterprise, Narain was looking at practically all the businesses of the branch such as Nokia, Radico Khaitan and Yamaha to name a few. He had been with Bates Enterprise for past one and a half years.

Confirming the development, Narain said, “However drastic this shifting of gears from creative to the client side might seem, I look at it as an interesting as well as adventurous opportunity. It was a difficult decision and I must say that the first reaction of many was disbelief, but I just hope that as the Head of Marketing and Communications at Emaar-MGF, I am able to dispel the notion and do good work on the other side of the fence too.”

He further said, “I have been working on the Emaar-MGF account for a while, but it was as a creative for the client. Though I had been contributing on one of the key fronts, in my new role I will take it further and look at overall marketing and communication strategies and hope to do well in this area.”

Narain has earlier worked with HTA (now JWT) for three years and has spent significant years at Contract Advertising for seven years before moving to Bates Enterprise. He has also done short stints at Trikaya Grey and FCB Toronto.
