With an aim to strengthen its professional and operational practices, Elephant, the independent strategic design outfit, has promoted Ravi Kabara as president. He was the vice-president, business and programme development earlier.
Speaking about his new role, Kabara says, "I will focus on expanding the reach of Elephant brand and augment the contribution of strategic design across clients' business needs. I will also ensure that quality of delivery, teams and operations remain excellent."
Talking about the promotion, Ashwini Deshpande, founder-director, Elephant, says, "Ravi brought a good balance of professionalism and business understanding at Elephant without affecting the intrinsic passion and free thinking that this profession requires. It seemed like the right time to entrust him with greater responsibility that would leave the founders with more time to mentor teams and explore newer ways of achieving innovation."
The Elephant team has a portfolio of leading brands and award winning projects across sectors and clients, which include ABD, Abbott, Akzo Nobel, Axis Bank, Bausch + Lomb, Britannia, Comviva, Daimler India, Delhi Duty Free, Godrej, Godfrey Philips, Heinz, HUL, Mars, MTR, Nirlep, P&G, Piramal, Sakaal, TalenEdge, Venky's and Wipro.
