    The Group was founded by the late Mr R K Swamy, a doyen of Indian advertising. His advertising career spanned 63 years and started in 1940 when he joined J Walter Thompson in 1940 in the Indian Languages department. After doing a stint in Calcutta for several years, he returned to Bombay.

    In 1955, he moved to Madras to start a new office of J Walter Thompson, which kickstarted the entire advertising industry in South India. After 33 eventful years, R K Swamy left JWT while he was a senior most director, and the company had become established as a leader in the business.

    At the age of 50, he founded R K SWAMY Advertising Associates and within seven years, this company had spread its wings across the top five cities of India. When the doors of R K SWAMY Advertising Associates Private Ltd opened for business on April 3, 1973, it had thirty people on its rolls. A full service Agency from day one, it even included a research department!

    Mr R K SWAMY was living up to one of his favourite quotes – “Not failure, but low aim is crime.” His company joining hands with the BBDO Worldwide Network in 1986, long before such tie-ups became the trend in the industry.

    Mr R K Swamy left his mark in three key ways. First, he truly built the advertising business by bringing in more advertisers, by espousing the power of communication in an era of a controlled economy. Second, he provided opportunities for an army of professionals to be trained, who are now scattered throughout the industry. Lastly, he was a passionate professional, who fought doggedly for the legitimacy of his business, without compromising on his principles and what he believed in.

    When Mr R K SWAMY passed away on June 5, 2003, he would have had the satisfaction of knowing one thing - he did build an institution, and it continues to strive to live up to his ideals.
