Kamath

Throughout his career, Jay has consistently
created culturally impactful work for brands such

Grail” exclusively on Samsung devices, and Kenny
Powers’ hostile corporate takeover of K-Swiss.

Jay’s creative leadership experience spans
award-winning companies such as 72andSunny,
R/GA, Wieden+Kennedy, Google and Facebook.
In 2012, he was featured in Business Insider’s
30 Under 30 list for “Most Creative People
in Advertising.”

Jay hails from Augusta, GA and enjoys cheering
for his home state’s mediocre sports franchises.
He currently lives with his wife in Culver City,
where you might hear his poor renditions of
Usher or Enrique Iglesias at a local karaoke bar.
