Rayomand J Patell has been named executive creative director at Havas Worldwide. Patell will be based in Mumbai and joins Havas Worldwide following an 11-year run with Contract Advertising. He will be based in Mumbai.
“I am delighted to announce Rayomand’s coming on board as our new creative leader in Mumbai,” said Nirmalya Sen, chief executive officer, Havas Worldwide India.
“Rayomand is well known for his knack of winning businesses, awards and, as a great mentor, the hearts of the team around him.”
Nima Namchu, chief creative officer, Havas Worldwide, said he got the guy he was looking for.
” When we started our hunt for a new ECD for Havas Worldwide Mumbai, three months ago, I was very clear of what kind of person I wanted on board,” said Namchu.
“Apart from someone who would be carrying an impressive book, I was looking for a creative leader who takes ownership of the agency, the team and the brands. I also wanted someone for whom thinking integrated came naturally.”
Sen said that Nima and Patell will be a great fit.
“Under Nima’s leadership, I am confident Rayomand will play a defining role in our drive to make Havas Worldwide, Mumbai the compelling new-age communications company we are in Gurgaon and elsewhere.”
