Surajit Roy quits Contract; replaced by Prashant Mathur

Ad industry veteran Surajit Roy, who had been with Contract Advertising as its head for five years, has put in his papers. An internal announcement to this effect was made on Monday, May 24, 2010. However, he will continue with the agency for three more months. Meanwhile, Prashant Mathur has been roped in to step into Roy’s shoes and is taking charge of Contract’s new office in Gurgaon.

According to industry sources, Roy was not headed anywhere as of now.

It may be recalled that in an internal move in 2005, Roy, who was then Vice-President, Client Servicing at JWT, was transferred to Contract as its head.

Roy, who has 24 years’ experience in advertising, began his career in 1986 with Trikaya Grey (now Grey Worldwide). After a short stint of three months, he moved on to JWT, where he spent the next 19 years. During this time, he had handled brands like Nestle, Pepsi, Frito Lay, Timex, Kargil and the Welcome Group, to name a few. He was also given the responsibilities to run Social and JWT’s Chandigarh offices.
