FCBUlka Interactive recently roped in Joy Das as media director, digital. He has more than 10 years of experience and has worked with a gamut of brands like eBay, ITC, Tata Docomo and MTV, among many others.
He will provide leadership to the digital media duties of several accounts at FCBUlka Interactive and will lead a team of more than 10 digital media planning and buying professionals.
Speaking on his appointment, Das says, "FCBUlka Interactive has some great accounts and has been doing robust work. In fact, a lot of its campaigns have been awarded at the Indian Digital Media Awards, DMAi 2013 etc. I am delighted to join the digital arm of one of the most respected advertising agency groups in the country. I look forward to contributing to this spree of account and award wins."
Satish Ramachandran, senior vice-president, FCBUlka Interactive, says, "We are growing at a scorching pace and digital is well poised to become a key medium for many of our group's clients. Our Interactive team's strength is now over 50 members. We have been consistently investing in talent and technology to ensure we are ahead of the curve. Joy's experience will be of immense value for us to maintain our growth rate."
With the rapid growth that the FCBUlka Interactive arm has been clocking, it was only imperative to make a hire at this level to handle some of its key accounts.
