Rahul Mathew bids adieu at McCann Erickson

McCann Erickson has been facing major changes in its management since over a month. Now, Creative Director Rahul Mathew has called off his duties with the agency. He had put in his papers a month ago. Mathew has been with the agency for over four years.

As Creative Director, Mathew had been handling brands like Saffola, Western Union, Balsara, and many more. On his decision of quitting, Mathew said, “I have been working with the agency for a long time. It’s been almost four years now. My decision of putting in the papers was not very concrete, but I wanted to take a break. I wanted to charge myself and most of all, spend some time with myself.”

On his future plans, Mathew denied to divulge any information. He added, “I’m here in Mumbai, just taking some time for a good opportunity. And now since I’ve taken a break, I’m doing some stuff which I wanted to do.”

Mathew has an experience of around nine years in advertising. Prior to McCann, he was with Ogilvy Delhi. He started his career in 1998 at JWT and then joined Leo Burnett. Mathew has also earlier worked with Enterprise Nexus.
