Amita’s inputs and experience will certainly prove to be of significance to the business”.

Said Lynn de Souza, chairman and CEO, Lintas Media Group, “Karishma Initiative has been launched primarily to expand our offering to clients who work with a global template. The new agency has the added advantage of being able to offer more flexibility to newer advertisers."
