Starting off at MNJ as an account executive Mansoor built his career path working on diverse brands in some of the most happening agencies in town. He rose to the Account Director level at Asiatic JWT where he was overseeing Rs 200 million worth of beverage advertising for Unilever.

2001 saw him take a slight detour from advertising to oversee Operations at one of the largest animation houses in the country Post Amazers. Being on the ‘other’ side gave him a perspective that helped when WPP offered him the opportunity to head Contract Advertising in Pakistan and save it from a swim or sink situation. It swam and 2 years later, Mansoor moved to JWT, this time as President.
