Contract Bengaluru gets a new ECD in Manoj Jacob

MUMBAI: Contract Advertising has got a new executive creative director (ECD) for its Bengaluru office. It has hired Manoj Jacob, who has worked with the company earlier as well and joins back after a gap of six years. Jacob will be reporting to Contract Advertising NCD Ashish Chakravarty and would also work in partnership with Monojit Ray who recently joined Contract as the Bengaluru head.

Prior to joining Contract, Manoj ran his own creative consultancy firm, where he worked with clients such as Nova Specialty Surgery, Apollo Hospitals, Simply South Restaurant and Abs Fitness among others.

“I am very happy to have Manoj on board as the ECD of our Bangalore office. He is extremely passionate about his craft, very driven, and a hands-on kind of leader. Having worked with him in the past, I won’t be surprised if he dives straight into the deep end from day 1 itself.  It is a challenging role, but I am positive he will shine,” said Chakravarty.

Manoj comes with an experience of 17 years and has worked with O&M, McCann Erickson, Satchi & Satchi, Euro RSCG, orchard, Publicis Ambience and Bates over the course of his career.

On his coming back to Contract, Manoj said, “It’s an awesome new team, across disciplines, that is getting together at Contract Advertising and I'm very happy to be a part of it.”

Manoj’s work has won him a lot acclaim and rewards both nationally and internationally from Cannes to New York festival to winning at AD Spot Non Profit Awards, Italy and the Bangalore Ad Club awards.
