BMB India, a 50:50 joint venture between Trevor Beattie's
BMB and advertising major Madison World, has appointed Raj
Nair as chief creative officer.
Nair's last stint was with Contract advertising as regional
creative director. He had joined contract advertising in 1997
as executive director and senior VP, where he grew to become
the regional creative director.
India CEO Prabha Prabhu said, "When we started BMB India,
our objective was to imbibe the BMB culture. Hence we got
Pat Burns from our London office as the CD. Now that we have
passed that stage, we thought it was time to get a creative
head from India. A person who has rich experience, done some
edgy work, won lots of awards and has a respectable name in
the industry. And Raj Nair fitted the bill. I am delighted
to have Raj Nair as our Chief Creative Officer to help me
take BMB to the next level."
London chairman Trevor Beattie added, " Raj has been
there and done it. He's a class act. He also gets what BMB
is about, he instinctively knows what makes us tick. Raj has
a portfolio and track record of stylish, uplifting work, we're
very proud to have him carrying the creative torch for BMB
added, "The time has come to help fashion the future
of BMB in India. BMB have been creating some stand - out work
in London. It's up to the team and I to do the same here.
I want to help create and recommend communication solutions
for clients that make the brand famous, ideally, regardless
of the medium used. (We will be traditional/non-traditional/whatever-it-takes.)
I want clients to feel and believe a sense of true partnership.
And, very importantly, I want to help create and nurture an
uplifting, rewarding, fun atmosphere at work that inspires
and liberates people to create great work."
