MxM Live with Subhash Kamath

15 Sep,2020


By Pradyuman Maheshwari


Last Thursday, September 10, CEO of BBH-Publicis Worldwide Subhash Kamath was unanimously elected Chairman of the Advertising Standards Council of India (ASCI). We interviewed him a day later as part of the MxM Live Leadership Series, and Kamath was, as always, his candid best.  But first a disclosure, I have been a part of ASCI’s Consumer Complaints Council for a few years, but that I must tell you is purely coincidental.


A little about Kamath: He has been in the business of building brands for over three decades (32 years, to be precise), 22 of which have been in senior leadership roles.  Over those many years, he has worked in renowned creative agencies in India like Ogilvy, Trikaya Grey, Ambience Publicis and Bates 141. He was one of the founding Managing Partners at BBH India in 2009 and currently serves as the CEO for BBH & Publicis Worldwide, India which is part of the Publicis Groupe.


Kamath  has been an active member of The Ad Club in the past and has served on the Board of Governors of the Advertising Standards Council of India (ASCI) since 2010. He plays in a rock band called ‘Wanted Yesterday’, and is crazy about cricket, single malts and good food.


Sit back. Watch. Enjoy. Like.
