Creativeland Asia has announced the departure of its group CEO, Rana Barua.
The announcement was made post the agency's annual board review.
Sajan Raj Kurup, founder and creative chairman, Creativeland Asia, said, “Following the board review last month, we arrived at a decision to part ways. It was great to have him here and we thank him for the time he has invested at Creativeland. Rana remains a lovely friend and we wish him the best in his future endeavours.”
Barua said, “After strong stints in advertising and communications, I have decided to take some time out to pursue newer interests. It’s been a short yet wonderful experience working with the talented and audacious bunch at CLA. I wish Raj and the CLA team the very best for a fabulous future.”
Barua had joined Creativeland Asia in July 2017 as group CEO. Prior to that he was CEO at Contract Advertising.
He has also worked with Red FM, Radio City, JWT, Ogilvy, McCann and Rediffusion.
