Wieden+Kennedy India has appointed Kapil Batra as National Creative Director. He will be reporting to Santosh Padhi, Chief Creative Officer, W+K

To begin with, his focus will be the Delhi office. He will also be operating from the Delhi office. 

In his last role, he was heading creative for the Gurgaon office of McCann Worldgroup India. 

Batra has been responsible for several known campaigns such as PayTM Karo, Share a Coke campaign (Friend Request & Landlord), Dettol soap bubbles activation, Rudali campaign for Radio Mirchi, PayTM Sweet Change activation and work for brands like, Maggi, Domino's Pizza, Alpenliebe, Chlormint, Happydent, Flipkart and Star Sports. 

His work has been awarded at Cannes, Adfest, D&AD, Spikes, Clio, One Show, Mirchi Kaan, GoaFest and Effies.

Batra said, "W+K has consistently created work that's awe-inspiring. It is bold and rooted in culture. So when this opportunity to be a part of this truly creatively driven organisation came, I got all excited. And in my subsequent interactions with Paddy and Ayesha, where they spoke about their vision for W+K India, the culture, and more importantly, the vibes I got, everything was just fantastic. I am happy to join the talented team here and contribute to writing an exciting new chapter for W+K India."

Padhi said, "We are in the people business and people are the source of creativity and ideas. We were looking for a solid creative people’s person with a great depth of insights, ideas and love for the craft, we found all of these and many more in Kapil. After spending two decades in the industry, his passion and hunger to do more is what impressed us the most, his versatile body of work reflects the human culture in a big way, which is one of the strong beliefs of W+K India and Global."

Ayesha Ghosh, President at the agency, said, "When we saw the creative work that Kapil has been responsible for, we knew that we had to have him join us. Within the agency, we often talk of breaking out of ads and breaking into the culture. That is what much of his work represents. And it doesn't hurt that some of his campaigns have gone on to make a sizable difference to the brands they were created for! What completely sealed the deal for us over and above the work, is that Kapil is an incredibly nice, humble person, who lets his work speak for him. And we're suckers for that."
