Harsh Kapadia

Chief Creative Officer
New York
, United States of America

After globe-trotting across four continents, Harsh is the Chief Creative Officer for MRM New York. While he has been an ad guy for over ten years, he fell in love with it when he was 5 years old. According to his folks, mealtime, playtime or just about any time came to a standstill when the commercial breaks came on. He was transfixed. And has been since. With a career that’s spanned across India, Australia, United Kingdom and North America, the best agencies and building the most exciting brands, Harsh continues to be smitten to this day. Maybe that’s what drives him so hard to continue creating magic for major brands such as Google, Legoland, New Balance, Motorola, Australian Government to name a few. ??

Harsh has earned several creative awards from major advertising shows across the globe, including Cannes, D&AD, One Show, Spikes Asia and many more while earning personal recognition from Former First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama for his leadership and campaigns he has delivered. He has had the honor to judge shows such as Cannes, ADC, New York Festival and serves on the D&AD Impact Council and was recently named as the rising star of Madison Avenue revolutionizing advertising by Business Insider. ??

Harsh has been lucky enough to build and lead teams of some of the most passionate people to help build global brands. Moving around the world, Harsh goes by the philosophy that the mix of cultures and curiosity to learn more always leads to great ideas and believes in the application of technology to ideas and ideas to technology, and that a big idea can make far more than a great ad or an experience.
