Basis our experience with DDB MudraMax and their potential to offer end-to-end solutions, we have decided to put all our eggs into one basket. We are confident that they will do their job well.”

NP Sathyamurthy, president, DDB MudraMax, added, “It is always a delight to work with the JLL team and we are glad they have reaffirmed their confidence in DDB MudraMax, through this consolidation.
