While Mr Dabral is moving to DDB Mudra, Mr Pathak’s destination next is not known, refusing to comment on the issue. He has been with the agency since four years.


Meanwhile, at BBH India, Raj Kamble who had replaced Priti Nair last year as Managing Partner, has also called it quits.  ECD Russell Barrett has been elevated to the post of Managing Partner. Kamble’s next port of call is unknown.


In an official communiqué, Sir John Hegarty said:  ‘It’s always sad when great creative people leave you, but it’s greater satisfaction when you can promote an outstanding creative leader from within. Russell Barrett has created most of our best work and put BBH India on  the creative map. I believe with his creative leadership our Mumbai office will go from strength to strength.”
