It is really sad to hear of the passing away of Mr. Anil Kapoor, one of the doyens of Indian Advertising.
Mr. Anil Kapoor who was popularly called as Billy Kapoor in the industry circle was instrumental in building FCB-Ulka to one of India’s robust and finest advertising agencies after he took over as the MD. In his earlier years he spent a considerable amount of time in marketing having worked with companies like Boots and Yellow Pages. Clients had great respect for Mr. Kapoor when he was the head of the Agency.
Among the many achievements of Kapoor, he was appointed as a member of the FCB Worldwide (Foote, Cone & Belding) Board, New York in August 2019, thus becoming the first Indian advertising agency head to be a part of the apex worldwide board. He was also awarded the AAAI Lifetime Achievement Award in 2013.
