Says Nair, "Like all good creative directors, his cache of awards is impressive, with metals at Asia Pac Adfest, Promax and Outdoor Awards, and shortlists at Cannes. However, his team-building and leadership skills were most attractive to us. With Brijesh at the helm, you can expect some exciting creative solutions to brand building."

Jacob has eight years of advertising experience, which includes stints at Saatchi & Saatchi and Rediffusion DY& R. So far, he has handled accounts such as Surf, LG Electronics, Lakme HairNext, Nestle Polo, Bilt Paper, Greenply, Carlsberg and Havells.

Says Jacob, "Grey has been in the news of late and that, too, for the correct reasons. And it feels awesome to be part of such a place. The fact that Priti's joined as NCD made the decision a no-brainer. So, for sure, I'm looking forward to working with the teams and dealing with the challenges and opportunities that Grey will offer. I'm hoping and wishing it will be an exciting journey together - as a team, as a branch and as an agency."
