He is recognized as one of the top Creative Directors in India, is ranked among the top 50 ECDs in the world, and moves from his role as Chief Creative Officer of WPP's Contract.

In his previous stint at McCann India, he closely worked with Joshi and helped to build McCann Delhi into one of Delhi's leading agencies.

Joshi said, "Ashish is a rare breed of creative talent who is backed by solid strategic thinking. He's constantly rediscovering himself and is genuinely interested in creating work with depth and effervescence at the same time. Moreover, he is a great team builder. I am really looking forward to working with him again."

Chakravarty commented, "There is familiarity and fondness that I have for McCann, having spent over a decade with the network. I enjoyed a fabulous run in my last stint, and it always felt good to see the team continue from strength to strength. On a personal note, I have a huge regard for Prasoon, both as a creative leader, and for the person that he is. So, when the opportunity came to rejoin in an exciting new role, I couldn't resist."
