Elvis Sequeira


Chief Operating Officer Hakuhodo, India


Elvis Sequeira graduated with an unnecessary degree in Chemistry that has been put to little use in jobs that have involved administration, accounting, sales, quality control and healthcare, before accidentally stumbling onto one in advertising.

He has been a Copywriter at a very small agency (Clea), the entire Copy Department of a medium sized one (DDB Mudra), Creative Director of very large businesses (Lowe Lintas), National Creative Director of two young outfits (Percept and Cheil SW Asia), as well as Executive Creative Director with a gigantic organization (JWT).

He has written advertising, done voice –work, directed tvcs, and has helped set up design cells and planning departments at some of the places that have thankfully let him have his way.

Elvis believes that insights are invaluable to the creative process and his work has won and found mention in award shows such as the Abby’s and One Show, among others.

Currently, Elvis Sequeira is the Chief Operating Officer (and emergency copywriter) of Hakuhodo India (formerly Hakuhodo Percept)- an Indo-Japanese agency that believes in doing all the stuff that’s never been tried before in the Country.
