His earlier stint at DDB Mudra, Chennai, and Art Advertising, Mumbai, during former years of his career span gave him an opportunity to work on the creative end for brands like Anchor, Dyna, Fem, Schwarzkopf, Nippon Paint, Cavin Kare, J.

Ahmed will report to Venkat Mallikarjunan, President, RAPP India and will manage clients across the agency's portfolio.

Quoting on his appointment, Ahmed said, "For me, it was to look at doing something different in advertising. At RAPP India, the true sense of 360 degree, including the digital exercise on a brand, approach to marketing communications and the sheer magnitude of work done for its clients excited me. I look forward to add value to these processes."
Mallikarjunan added, "RAPP India is going through its next phase of growth with a number of new business wins and a truly fabulous array of clients and spread of work. In a typical work day our life moves from a digital assignment to one involving Data and consumer engagement and then to a classical brand building task. It's a truly exciting period of time when we need people with deep passion for the communications business supported with a high level of energy and versatility. Kabir brings in just the right blend of enthusiasm and experience for the period ahead."
