He is a great fit in our team of explorer-strategists, missioned to find the sweet spot between consumer need gaps x technology x clients’ business growth. I am looking forward to working with him and adding fresh spark to the agency’s entrepreneurial DNA.”

Add to this Paritosh and Snehasis' ambition and passion! With my kind of experience, I hope to bring in a bit of ‘Baniya Branding’ mentality, wherein all branding efforts are tightly aligned to business objectives. While of course ensuring creative flair and the inventive possibilities of integration.”
