Gurgaon-based independent agency Thinkstr has announced its expansion to Bengaluru.
The agency has also announced the elevation of Ravi Raghavendra as national creative director (was executive creative director). Raghavendra will be leading the agency's expansion to Bengaluru. 
Satbir Singh, founder, Thinkstr, said, "Both these moves were overdue. Ravi has spearheaded the agency’s creative from day one and it was only a matter of time before he officially ran it. We’ve won some interesting new businesses and created some very popular campaigns where he has been at the core. We tossed a coin between Mumbai and Bengaluru for our next office and Ravi called correctly. Our client base includes traditional biggies as well as new-age startups, which matches the Bengaluru client profile to a T. We invite briefs from brands with national presence or ambitions.”
Raghavendra added, “We have been thinking of expanding our footprint beyond Gurugram for a while. Bengaluru is an exciting market. It’s not only a hotbed of new age businesses, it’s also the hotbed of new age thinking and home to many established marketing success stories. Speaking for myself, it’s also home for me. So it’s great to be back and assume added responsibilities from the home turf. I’m sure the Bengaluru clients, who are as fine as the Bengaluru weather, will be nice to us.”
