Emmanuel Upputuru, national creative director, Publicis Capital is exiting the agency. He has been with the agency for five years.
"I've truly enjoyed our partnership. He and I are very unlike as people so the partnership helped both of us to learn and improve. Now that he turns into an entrepreneur, I wish him success and satisfaction in his new endeavour," said Hemant Misra, chief executive officer, Publicis Capital.
Upputuru said, "I spent almost five years in Publicis. The longest stint in my career. It was fun and challenging at the same time. I would like to thank Hemant for the opportunity I got at Publicis. I feel I did my job to the best of my abilities. And I found in Nakul a fabulous leader. In fact I have learned a few tricks from him." He added, "I have been wanting to start something on my own since 1994. And it looks like the time has finally come."
Further details on Upputuru's next venture are awaited.
