RIP: Advertising veteran Quentin Eric Coello

Advertising veteran Quentin Eric Coello succumbed to liver complications on 13 October 2012, in Goa.

Coello was part of the ad agency MCM in the 70's, which was started by Kersee Katrak with ad men Mohammed Khan, Ravi Gupta, Panna Jain, Arun Kale and Romi Chopra.

Coello became the creative head of HTA Delhi at the age of 29. He was known for having made HTA Delhi one of the most sought after places for creative people to work in, in the early '80s, recalls former JWT hand Indu Balachandran.

Coello was Balachandran's first boss in advertising. "He had immigrated to Canada for sometime, but had come back to settle in Goa again," she added.

His son, Cornell Coello, has created a Facebook page for well wishers to pay homage:

May his soul rest in peace.
