Our alumni amaze us each and every day. Today, we’d like to feature a few of them who have either started their own agency or landed a senior position at leading companies in our country. We asked them about everything, right from their experience at WMA to what got them into the world of digital. Their responses were truly magical, read on to know more:
Hailing from Kolkata, Eric started his career in the field of digital by working as an account executive for JWT. During his tenure, he was asked to manage the brand, The Telegraph. He strategized, briefed and managed all brand and event campaigns for The Telegraph, which is undoubtedly one of the most active and visible brands in the city. After his stint at JWT, Eric went on to work at DDB Mudra. Cut to 2019, Eric is now the founder and CEO of Folks Media, a full stack digital agency based out of Kolkata. He leads a team of planners, visualizers, filmmakers, writers, graphic artists and more. On asking him what he strongly believes in, he said, “the only thing that is constant is to change itself and we must constantly learn and upgrade ourselves.”
Mayur is the co-founder and marketing head at Think Tree Media House, a thriving digital marketing agency catering to the digital needs of the F&B, fashion, real estate, sports and hospitality sectors in India. Mayur walked into WMA when he was looking to broaden the scope of services at his agency and 4 months after his course at WMA, Think Tree transformed from a social media and content creation agency into a full stack digital agency.
Think Tree has been operational for the past 4 years and it gives us immense pride to announce that the Tree is branching out overseas, to Australia and New Zealand. We asked Mayur if he had advice for any freshers looking to enter this field and he quoted Simon Sinek,
“People don’t buy what you do, they buy why you do it.” And we couldn’t agree more!
Think Tree has been in close touch with WMA over the years and we wish them nothing but the best for their future.
