He excites me because he's talented, enthusiastic and hungry. I think he''ll make BBH better, just as, hopefully, we'll do the same for him."
Raj Kamble said, "BBH doesn't just do great award winning work but they build brands and are, I believe, the only Agency in the world that has done it consistently over the last twenty years. I have always admired BBH's work and their culture. There is substantial strategic thinking behind every single campaign. I personally believe in that approach and have always wanted to work with them, and feel honored to join BBH India as a Partner."
