Nangia has been credited with the creation of the iconic 'Hum Mein Hain Hero', the campaign especially created for the launch of Hero MotoCorp, after Hero parted ways with Honda. He joined Law & Kenneth (L&K) seven years ago and has played a pivotal role in some of its acclaimed work especially that of Jockey, Thomas Cook, VIP Skybags and Pepperfry.com.

Commenting on the elevation, Praveen Kenneth, co-owner, chairman and managing director, L&K Saatchi & Saatchi, says, "Our focus over the last decade has been to build a strong business foundation and strong client partnerships. Nangia is a fine creative leader who has worked closely with me. He will now join the creative leadership team along with Victor, to move the game to the next level. This is in line with our plan to have creative leaders drive the future of our business."
