Commenting on the appointments, Raj Kamble, managing partner of BBH India, pointed to the duo's "enthusiasm, energy and knowledge of new media" as key strengths, adding that he expected them to generate "unconventional ideas".
Das said BBH was appealing due to its creative reputation and lure of challenging work. Kumar added that the agency's biggest asset was its willingness to experiment and "explore the unknown".

Kumar has been in advertising for over five years and has a BA in Visual Communication from KVB Institute of Technology, Australia and a Diploma in Graphic Design from Cambrian College of Applied Arts, Canada.
