Ashish Chakravarty moves back to McCann as head of creative and executive director
McCann Worldgroup has announced the appointment of Ashish Chakravarty as head of creative and executive director, India. 
He moves from Contract, where he was chief creative officer. At McCann he will report to Prasoon Joshi, chairman, McCann Asia Pacific and CEO and CCO, McCann Worldgroup India. 
This is Chakravarty's third stint with McCann. In his previous stint, he had joined McCann in 2007 as creative chief for its Delhi office. 
Joshi said, “Ashish is a rare breed of creative talent who is backed by solid strategic thinking. He’s constantly rediscovering himself and genuinely interested in creating work with depth and effervescence at the same time. Moreover, he is a great team builder, I'm really looking forward to Ashish joining McCann back.”
Chakravarty said, “There is a certain degree of familiarity, and fondness that I have for McCann, having spent over a decade there. I enjoyed a fabulous run in my last stint, and it always felt good to see it continue from strength to strength. On a personal note, I have a huge regard for Prasoon, both as a creative leader, and for the person that he is. Our bond runs deep, and we have a quirky chemistry of sorts; one that is maddening, and magical at the same time. And almost always results in some very good work. So, when the opportunity came to get back into the thick of it, and also in a more substantial way than before, I found it hard to resist.”
