Crayons president Ranjan Bargotra decides to move on

He headed the agency for 24 years.

NEW DELHI: Ranjan Bargotra has stepped down as president of The Crayons Network after heading the agency for 24 years. He is taking a break after spending 34 years in branding and advertising.

In the past, Bargotra has worked with Clea Advertising, Image Heads, and Uncle Chips. 

“During these 24 years journey at Crayons, we did great work and were lucky to cross a lot of milestones and this wouldn’t have been possible without the support I had from Kunal Lalani. I couldn’t have asked for more operational freedom or better team spirit,” said Bargotra.

On what lies ahead, he added, “Business models, client expectations as well as consumer behaviour have all undergone a sea change in recent years on account of technology and more recently due to the pandemic. This changed scenario presents a lot of new opportunities and will see the emergence of many new start-ups and I am looking at extending my support to a couple of such young entrepreneurs.”

The Crayons Network CMD Kunal Lalani said, “It has been an amazing long journey with Ranjan and his departure would leave a void. Ranjan played a key role in making Crayons a name to reckon with in the industry. He is a people’s person and has built great relationships within the agency as well as with clients and associates alike. We will miss him and our best wishes will always be with him.”
