About Indy

As a creative strategist, Indy works with business leaders to rethink and develop new models and marketing strategies. Often leading small teams, he pulls in ethnographic research to drive innovative user-centered approaches to product development and marketing design.

Indy’s creative strategy career began in advertising, looking for new modes of promotion for top-level brands in technology, gaming, entertainment, and sports. With pioneering digital initiatives and tie-ins with traditional ads, he created inaugural digital strategies for high-profile brands, including adidas, Xbox, and BBC.

Before McKinsey, Indy cofounded and was director of creative strategy at Google Creative Lab in London—the company’s internal marketing and product innovation unit. In this role, he developed new offerings and optimized existing products, such as Google Search and Google Maps. He set up Google’s Future of Retail Lab in Mountain View, California, and established the company’s first ethnographic-research unit.

Indy is bilingual in English and Bengali, and he is proficient in Dutch, French, and German. He is passionate about human rights and children’s causes, and he spends his Saturday mornings coaching football to 4- to 9-year-olds, regardless of the weather conditions.
