MUMBAI: DDB Mudra South and East has appointed Tejali Shete and Ajay Menon as senior creative directors. The duo will be based out of the agency’s Bengaluru office. 

With over a decade of experience in the creative communications industry, Shete joins DDB Mudra from Grey Worldwide and a short stint at Leo Burnett, Kuala Lumpur. Shete has worked with agencies including Contract, Lowe Lintas, Ogilvy & Mather, Creativeland Asia, and Percept/H.

On the other hand, Menon joins DDB Mudra from JWT Chennai where he was senior creative director & AVP. With over 16 years of experience, Menon has worked at Orchard in Mumbai, JWT in Chennai and Saatchi in Bengaluru.

Shete said, “Joining DDB Mudra South and East was an easy decision for me, considering their diverse brand portfolio that carries immense potential, the quality of talent and a young and energetic team. Besides, I am excited to work with Sonal Dabral, whose work I have been following since the days when I was cutting my teeth in advertising. He has fostered an excellent balance between creative excellence and focus on client success at DDB Mudra, which would help us as a team to achieve laurels on national as well as international platforms.”

Menon added, “Back in Bengaluru after nine years, coming to DDB Mudra is in many ways, a homecoming. This agency offers some great things - strong leadership, an emphasis on creativity, an open culture, a terrific team and great brands. In other words, all the necessary elements to create great advertising. It’s an opportunity that no creative guy looking to making an impact will pass.”

DDB Mudra South & East president Ranji Cherian said, “I am delighted to have Tejali Shete & Ajay Menon join our team at DDB Mudra South and East. They come in with solid experience and strong body of work to showcase. They are extremely talented and nice to work with and fit into our DDB culture that prioritizes creativity & humanity. I am confident that their contribution will take our agency to greater heights."
