Commenting on Raj Nair’s elevation to the position of CEO and Chief Creative Officer, Balsara said: “Raj has proved over the last few years that whilst maintaining his creative focus, he can look at the larger business picture from the client’s perspective and I am sure this move will help make Madison BMB a more result oriented agency.”
