Prior to this, he was Group Creative Director at Ogilvy & Mather, where he developed iconic campaigns for Unilever, Cadbury, BCCI and more and rose rapidly to Group Creative Director.

Speaking on the signing, Ryan Mendonca says, “Goes without saying I’m excited to be partnering Roopak and the team at BANG BANG.

Roopak Saluja, Founder & Chief Executive Officer – The 120 Media Collective, comments, “Sometimes you just know someone's going to make a kickass Director; they tend to exude a special storytelling ability and a keen eye for detail. I've known Ryan over the years and have always been a fan of his abilities. He's definitely that guy. Watch out world, here comes Ryan Mendonca! "
