Bipin Pandit completes 25 years with The Ad Club, pens heartfelt note

Bipin Pandit, COO, The Advertising Club, has completed 25 years with the advertising body. In a letter, Pandit recalled that it was on March 1, 1998 that he had joined The Advertising Club. “My appointment letter was issued by the most respected, ever smiling and immensely popular Ramesh Narayan, who was the President then. Time really flies and how 25 years have gone by is something of which I think now and look upon the entire journey with lots of satisfaction, sense of achievement and accomplishment,” he added.

Highlighting his tenure with the Ad Club, Pandit, mentioned that 850 events were held during this period. Adding further, he wrote, “It is extremely satisfying that I have been the point person and an integral part of 22 Effies, 21 Emvies, 10 Abbys, 15 Goafests, 12 Adasias, 3 Marquees, 500-plus juries. Some of these events are truly world class and the biggest of our country. When I had joined, Abbys was the main show of the Ad Club and the industry. In fact, it was a bigger brand than Ad Club. We also had AdWorks and M.AD Quiz at that point of time; today we have 5 to 6 shows which are the biggest in our country. Not to forget events such as DCODE, VICE & VERSA, M.Ad.Quiz, Educational workshops, etc.”

Pandit’s letter also reflects his immense love for music, which finds expression in the musical extravaganza started by him – Khumaar. He added that in the 16 years since its launch, musical nite Khumaar has become a brand onto itself. Continuing further Pandit wrote that he had also written a coffee table book, had come out with a ‘Khumaar Express Supplement’, and had started a online chat show on his YouTube channel. “I am happy could compere a show for Bharat Ratna Pandit Bhimsen Joshi and also wrote some good lines on another Bharat Ratna, Sachin Tendulkar, for which he has written a personal letter of appreciation,” he added.

Pandit expressed his appreciation for working with outstanding business leaders and receiving good support from his co-workers.
