This is the ideal time for Indigo Consulting to expand its top management and leadership team.

I am very excited to have him on board and look forward to working with him in scaling up the company.”
 
On the new role, Hardikar said, “I am very happy to become a part of this large family. Indigo already is a company with a great reputation and highly respected for their creative and technology capabilities. What really attracted me in this opportunity is the vision Vikas has, to grow this company further. I am sure with my experience of managing 360-degree digital work, I will be able to contribute to a greater success for this company.”
