"Who could say no to a beard like that? Not only is Vinay a proven and talented multidisciplinary creative leader who'll further boost our creative mojo, he's got a night job as the frontman for leading metal band, Bhayanak Maut. That's the kind of well roundedness that adds to the diversity and eclectic culture we've nurtured at Bang Bang & Jack in the Box."
Prashanth Challapalli, Business Head, Jack in the Box Worldwide
"Vinay brings hardcore digital brand building experience having spearheaded the creative on the Vodafone Zoozoo digital account. We are in the middle of a massive expansion programme with major new business wins like Windows Phone and Forest Essentials. At this stage, we need a strong line of creative leaders and we couldn't have found a better fit than Vinay."
Samit Malkani, Head of Creative, Jack in the Box Worldwide
"It's great to have Vinay coming on board. Vinay brings a wealth of experience across mainline advertising and digital marketing, and will have the opportunity to use that experience on some of our key brands. This is a big step towards making our creative vision a reality, and I'm looking at him as a partner-in-crime to make that happen."
