Equus has announced the appointment of Arjun Chandra as Senior Vice-President of the agency. Chandra joined Equus in 2014 as Account Supervisor and has rapidly moved up the ranks to head up Client Services as Senior VP. He will report directly to Swapan Seth, Chairman of Equus.
An alumnus of The British School, Chandra studied Economics and Marketing at Syracuse University where he was on the Dean’s List. He commenced his advertising career at Grey Worldwide where he worked on brands such as GSK, Spicejet and National Geographic.
Speaking on Chandra’s appointment, Seth told BestMediaInfo, “In my career I have been fortunate to work with suits with an impeccable appreciation of fine creative work. Be it Suhel Seth, Nirvik Singh, John Kuruvilla or Anu Raj. Arjun is a fierce custodian of Equus’ creative conscience. He is seized by fine work. He also has immense inter-personal skills with clients and colleagues.”
Typical of Seth, he added, “Plus, Arjun answers his mails in under three minutes.”
There is something about Equus’ DNA. Commenting on his new role, Chandra told BestMediaInfo, “Equus has always been an ampersand company. Suhel & Swapan, Swapan & Anurag, Swapan & Sreya. I look forward to Swapan & Arjun. I am humbled & energized.”
