GreySpotlight – Samay LundJuly 5th, 2016
Name: Samay Lund – Account Director – Client Services (Digital)
Claim to Fame: I was abducted by aliens. They beamed me up. While dissecting me, they realized I was a lost cause and noticed an exceptional amount of GREY matter. They beamed me back down!
1. What sparked your interest in the advertising/creative industry?
Fresh out of college, I didn’t know what to do with myself. I happened to join a small BTL agency. That’s when advertising started wooing me. Innovative advertising, emerging formats, embryonic platforms started catching my eye. After that, we’ve been a couple for around 8 years. It’s still complicated though.
2. Tell me about the best vacation you have taken?
Still waiting for it. Once space travel is a little more affordable, I reckon I’ll get that chance.
3. If you could trade lives with one person for an entire day who would it be and why?
Jim Heekin. Who wouldn’t want to be at the helm of the Agency of the Year? It’d be awesome to get a holistic perspective of the workings of such a large company.
4. What is your most bizarre talent?
I have many… Difficult to mention all but nonetheless, some of them include: grossing out family & friends at a food table, 10 hour long TV binge watching sessions, maintaining harmony between creative and clients’ teams – well, the last one is a different league of bizarre.
5. If you could retire tomorrow, what would be the first thing you do?
Pack my bags and head to a beach (maybe in Phuket). Set up a nice shack! Buy a speed boat and take visitors on island tours.
