Aditya Kanthy to be MD and CEO at DDB Mudra Group

Brijesh Jacob and Deepak Nair quit DDB Mudra Group. Group CEO Vineet Gupta departs in early 2019

Aditya Kanthy to be MD and CEO at DDB Mudra Group
Brijesh Jacob, joint MD, 22feet Tribal Worldwide and chief creative technologist, DDB Mudra Group and Deepak Nair, chief growth officer, DDB Mudra Group and CEO, 22feet Tribal Worldwide, have left the organisation. 
 
Both Jacob and Nair were elevated by the organisation last year. 
 
The duo join Vineet Gupta (group CEO, DDB Mudra Group) among the high-profile exits at the group. Gupta is believed to be joining a VC fund that will also double up as a communication consultancy. The future plans of Jacob and Nair are unknown.  
 
Earlier this year, the duo were accused in the #MeToo movement, though it's not clear if their departure from the Mudra group was as a result of that. 
 
Company sources confirmed that the three have quit the organisation at various points of time for unrelated reasons.
 
Aditya Kanthy, group MD, DDB Mudra Group will also become the group CEO early next year. The group is also in the process of putting in place a new structure which will be unveiled over the next few weeks.
