Madison BMB elevates Raj Nair to CEO
MUMBAI: Madison BMB has promoted Raj Nair to CEO & chief creative officer while Kim Solomon has been appointed as chief operating officer.
Meanwhile, founder member Prabha Prabhu has retired after spending 28 years with Madison.
Commenting on Raj Nair’s elevation, Madison World Chairman Sam Balsara said, “Raj has proved over the last few years that whilst maintaining his creative focus, he can look at the larger business picture from the client’s perspective and I am sure this move will help make Madison BMB a more result oriented agency.”
On appointment of Kim Solomon, Balsara added: “Kim is a true blue advertising professional with over 20 years experience at Ogilvy, Mudra, Dentsu, Triton and Everest Advertising and has handled many blue chip clients over the years. I am sure his experience and expertise will add tremendous value to our current and future clients.”
A founder member of Madison, Prabhu has worked with the agency since 1988. She was the CEO of Madison BMB for the last several years. She played a critical role in the formative years of Madison working on successful brands like Cinthol, Vicks, Whisper and BlueStar. More recently, she has worked on brands like Asian Paints, VVF, Hyper City and Angel Broking.
Said Prabhu, “Madison has been my home for the last 28 years and has been an intrinsic part of me. Whilst I was happy doing effective campaigns for our clients, I was very keen to also win awards. And in the last 4 years, we have won several awards. After a rewarding and satisfying career, I now look forward to spending more time doing social work, giving back to society and spending time with my children who are both in advertising and settled in the US.”
