BBDO India has announced the elevation of Hemant Shringy as chief creative officer, Mumbai. He will report to Josy Paul, chairman and chief creative officer, BBDO India.
Shringy had joined BBDO India in 2012 as creative director. He was most recently executive creative director.
Paul said, “Hemant is an exceptional creative leader who understands and relates with the youth of India. His work goes under the skin of traditional advertising and touches a nerve that affects social change. Hemant's belief in the power of empathy has helped him create work that strikes the right chord with clients and consumers. He has been leading the Mumbai creative team admirably and this promotion is in recognition of all he has done at BBDO and reflects the collective belief and future-forward vision of the agency.”
Jean-Paul Burge, chairman and CEO, BBDO Asia, added, “Hemant is one of our brightest talents, not only in India, but across the region and well beyond. We have worked together for several years and this is a well-deserved promotion. His work and track record speaks for itself and I have no doubt that he will continue developing and creating work that amazes us all.”
Shringy said, “I have had an amazing journey at BBDO, an agency that constantly and consistently breaks ground. There is a certain structure to the fluidity, that exists without being visible. And at a time when constant reinvention is key, I believe we have what it takes to reach newer heights of greatness.”
Prior to joining BBDO, Shringy was with Grey group India. He has also worked with Ogilvy, DDB Mudra and Saints and Warriors.
