Satbir Singh, managing partner and chief creative officer, Havas Worldwide has announced that he'll be joining FCB Ulka next month as chief creative officer.
Prior to this, the agency's creative function was helmed by KS Chakravarty, who left the agency in September 2014.
Singh will be relocating to Mumbai from Delhi for this role.
Singh is currently in his notice period at Havas.
Singh said, "It feels fabulous to be back at a time when the country is at its buzziest. The PM has spoken of smart cities and clearly it's time for smart, digitally savvy large agencies to create work that speaks to people in their preferred medium, whether it's a 30 inch screen or a 4 inch one. FCB Ulka has been amongst India's top agencies for decades and has the size, an enviable client list and the relationships to do exactly that."
Nagesh Alai, chairman, FCB Ulka Group, commented, “Satbir Singh will be a right fit and a great addition to FCB Ulka’s existing strong leadership team as the organisation embarks on a renewed drive to memorable and path breaking creative that will continue to build brands for its clients in the dynamic digital age”.
