Mohanty joins the agency from McCann Erickson, where he spent 14 months as ECD.

On the move, Mohanty said, "It's a privilege to be part of DDB's creative culture that's guided by play books not rule books. With Sonal's help, I'm keen on creating a place where one looks forward to coming to work - even on a Monday morning. And also producing some glorious work along the way!"

Sonal Dabral, chairman and chief creative officer, DDB Mudra Group, said, “New Delhi is an extremely important market for us so I'm really happy that a talent like Sambit will lead our creative offering there.

I'm certain Sambit will play a big role in helping shape an exciting creative future for DDB Mudra Group."

Vandana Das, president, DDB Mudra Delhi, added, “We have got to dot our "I"s in the creative business.
