Soon after Nikhil Shahane was named as vice president, Mobile and International Business, and Mahesh Patil as the company's chief technology officer, Indigo Consulting has roped in Navin Kansal as its national creative director. Kansal joins Indigo Consulting from Grey India where he was spearheading the agency's digital creative function as executive creative director, and worked on brands such as Volkswagen, Dell, Cadbury (Bournvita, Silk), Birla SunLife, ICICI Bank, Go Air, ITC, STAR Network, Sony LIV and Adobe.
Harshad Hardikar, COO, Indigo Consulting, adds, "Navin and I have worked together in the past, and I am fully convinced about his great ability to think big brand ideas that can create magic for brands, using digital media. This is the most critical position we were waiting to fill-in for some time. I'm sure that Navin's creative acumen, coupled with his leadership skills, will take Indigo's creative reputation to new heights."
Commenting on his appointment, Kansal shares, "Indigo Consulting has a great momentum going forward and a huge potential that is waiting to be tapped. The agency is blessed with great clients and a multi-disciplinary team that is rich in experience with full-service offerings that very few digital agencies in India have. I look forward to working closely with Harshad and Raj to leverage the technology, UX and mobile capabilities of Indigo in new and innovative ways to solve business problems. My focus will be to design and implement digital solutions with a human purpose in mind, by keeping Leo Burnett's HumanKind philosophy as my North Star."
Meanwhile, Vikas Tandon, we hear, has taken on an advisory role at the agency. He had quit the company as its founder and managing director sometime back.
