Gupta brings with him 14 years of rich experience from sectors like advertising, brand management and media. He joined Mudra MAX in 2008 and during the last two years he was responsible for setting up and strengthening its various units.

Commenting on Gupta's new role, Pratap Bose said, "We realize that as we grow in size and capabilities, a centralized control of vision and strategy is key to focused growth deliverables. Our key challenge in the medium and long term will be to manage organizational complexities, maintain market focus, and keep our offering clearly differentiated.  As CSO, Anurag will be the “go to” person for all such strategic shifts and execution. He brings a unique blend of organizational planning, creativity, entrepreneurship and a deep understanding of the business to this role and is the right person to take up this challenge."

My new role will enable me to evolve Mudra MAX to the next level, by bringing in fresh ideas, fresh offerings and new ways of doing business. I am thrilled about the prospects offered by this position and look forward to delivering consistent results. I firmly believe that today the Mudra Group is the best place to be - if you have the passion and drive for new ideas."
