Rana Barua has quit Creativeland Asia as CEO after a short stint of less than a year. He had joined the agency in July last year.
â€śFollowing the board review last month, we arrived at a decision to part ways. It was great to have him here and we thank him for the time he has invested at Creativeland. Rana remains a lovely friend and we wish him the best in his future endeavours,â€ť said Founder and Creative Chairman Sajan Raj Kurup.Â
Kurup takes on the reins now and will drive the growth and diversification plans hands-on along with CLAâ€™s long term financial consultant turned full time CFO, Venkat Balasubramanian, Ventureland CEO, Srijib Mallik and a strong team of business leaders.
Commenting on the move, Barua said, â€śAfter strong stints in advertising and communications, I have decided to take some time out to pursue newer interests. Itâ€™s been a short yet wonderful experience working with the talented and audacious bunch at CLA. I wish Raj and the CLA team the very best for a fabulous future.â€ť
