Ambar Chakravarty is the ECD at Publicis Ambience. Creativity runs in his genes. His mother is an artist and his brother (Ashish Chakravarty) is also in the advertising field. Walking on their footsteps, Ambar also wanted to do something creative and wanted to make a mark in film making. However, he stumbled upon advertising purely by chance and has been here ever since.
After his stints at Saatchi and Saatchi, Rediffusion DY&R, Mudra and Contract, he landed in McCann Mumbai, where he spent three years before joining Publicis. Heâ€™s worked on big-ticket accounts like Coca-Cola, Samsung, Ariel, Head & Shoulders, Radio Mirchi and Parachute Aftershower Gel, Barclayâ€™s Bank, BarclayCard and Tata Indicom. Currently he looks after the P&G accounts at publicis ambience.
