L&K Saatchi & Saatchi has announced that its Chief Creative Officer, Delna Setha will be moving on from the agency after a five-year stint in order to pursue other interests.


The agency has also rolled out a new creative organisational structure which will be led by Kartik Smetacek and Rohit Malkani who have been elevated to Joint National Creative Directors, with immediate effect.


Said Anil Nair, CEO, CEO & Managing Partner, L&K Saatchi & Saatchi: “It is always a sad moment to say goodbye to someone who has been an integral part of our growth story over the last five years. I’d like to thank her for being an exceptional leader and paving the way for path-breaking work along with her team. I wish Delna the very best for her future endeavor.”


Said Sethna: “All through life I’ve only ever followed my heart, and I think I’m much too old now to mend my ways. I wish everyone at Saatchi much luck.”


On the newly appointed roles Nair said: “Rohit and Kartik have played a critical role in shaping L&K S&S’s creative product. They have been an integral part of the Leadership team for many years now. It was quite natural to look within and choose them to take on this larger mandate. I am absolutely certain that both of them will surpass everyone’s expectations in raising the creative bar further.”
