Platform-first Martech network, Wondrlab, has appointed Bhavesh Kosambia as Content Lead.
Kosambia will report to CCO Amit Akali and lead a set of key accounts and talent.
Kosambia has been in advertising for more than two decades, last as Group Creative Director at Grey. He’s handled national and international brands like Audi, Coke, Ferrero, Gillette, Eureka Forbes, Reliance, Zee Tv, Parle, Paras, Marico and ITC. He has won various national and international awards such as Cannes, One Show, New York Festival, Adfest and Spikes Asia.
He’s even served on numerous juries, including the Grand Jury for the New York Festival. The last few years he’d been focussing on his skills as an ad film maker and director. His films Tanishq ‘Raksha Bandhan’ and Gillette ‘Soldier’ have been among the top popular ones in the last couple of years.
At Wondrlab he will use his skills, as a creative lead, thinker and as an ad film director.
Amit Akali, CCO and Co-founder, said, “I’ve been lucky to work with Bhavesh in the past. Both, as a creative person and as a film maker. He’s done some of our best work as a director and I’ve seen him do his magic as a creative team lead. He’s one of those rare people that is constantly learning and evolving. And I’m sure he’ll quickly get down to doing cutting-edge, platform first, tech-led work. We are also clear that inhouse talent is going to get all possible opportunities, especially with our in-house production set up – Bhavesh has already directed a few films for us, including the recent ‘Karva Chauth’ film for Bharat Matrimony. Most importantly, he’s someone our clients can depend upon as a partner and support system to build their brands. Welcome to wonder Bhavesh.”
Kosambia added, “I have always believed that any place is made by the people who work there and my association with Wonderlab and What’s Your Problem for the last couple of years has just proved me right again. The energy, dedication, and quest for doing something different by Amit, Rakesh and Saurabh can only be experienced only if you work with them. Currently the place is buzzing with talented and hungry for good work people and equally hungry for good work clients. Honestly speaking I feel like an extended family who has come to feast at a table where everyone is already enjoying whatever they are supposed to do. And I am sure I too will be able to join the party.”
