His depth and width of experience will be the bedrock from which BBDO will contribute and influence India from Bengaluru. Watch out, Bengaluru, BBDO is here!"
Shekhawat said, “What got me excited to join BBDO was my initial interactions with Suraja and Josy. Through our conversations, it became very evident that we have an exciting journey of growth ahead - not only in terms of growth in numbers but also client relationships through meaningful and impactful work. I look forward to being a part of this dynamic team.”
He has also worked with Wunderman, Wizcraft and India Today.
