His strength is that he is a new age planner who understands design, digital, content and advertising. In an agency that is on the growth highway, we need people who can move sharply and swiftly, and Namit is the right fit for that."

It is a great opportunity to lead a talented planning team with diverse backgrounds that brings lot of interesting thinking on the table. Raj is a true entrepreneur and has a way of connecting the dots in interesting ways in both business and creativity, and I look forward to this journey eagerly."
