Nabendu Bhattacharyya, President, OgilvyAction India, has put in his papers. August 30, 2009, will be his last day with OgilvyAction, where he had been working for the last 10 years. Bhattacharyya is starting his own venture in the OOH sector soon.
Bhattacharyya had started his career with Selvel – Vantage Group, a Delhi-based OOH specialist, in 1993. After a successful stint of five years, he moved on to the international sphere with Emirates Neon in the Middle East. His last stint was with Mudra, where he started their outdoor division, Prime Site, before moving on to Ogilvy. Bhattacharyya is an ‘Ogilvyite’ in the true sense and cherishes each moment of his last 10 years with Ogilvy. His recent achievement was being runner up in the Business Person of the Year 2008 category in The Agency of The Year Awards organised by Media Magazine A’pac’.
Born in Kolkata, Bhattacharyya had dreamt of becoming a famous football player, but has instead created a name for himself in the out-of-home advertising sphere.
