Prabha played a critical role in the formative years of Madison working on successful brands like Cinthol, Vicks, Whisper, BlueStar and She Comfort and more recently with Asian Paints, VVF, Hyper City and Angel Broking among others.

I am sure his experience and expertise will add tremendous value to our current and future clients.”

Whilst I was happy doing effective campaigns for our clients, I was very keen to also win awards. And in the last 4 years we have won several awards. After a rewarding and satisfying career, I now look forward to spending more time doing social work, giving back to society and spending time with my children who are both in advertising and settled in US.”

Madison BMB CCO and CEO Raj Nair, said, “I cannot imagine life at Madison without Prabha. These are extremely large shoes to fill and we will do our very best to keep the flag flying vigorously. And of course I am looking forward to this new role and partnering our clients to help them continue to achieve their business goals through insightful advertising.”
