Speaking on the development, Nisha Singhania, general manager, Saatchi& Saatchi – Mumbai, said, “At Saatchi & Saatchi, we are looking at adding truly committed professionals who are passionate about brand building. Both Bhairavi and Kavita are two such individuals who excel
in their fields and bring with them immensely rich experience across categories and clients. With talent like that on board I have no doubt that we   ill scale greater heights this year.”

Naik said, “I found the Saatchi role exciting because of the opportunity to work on some great brands in diverse categories, especially with a bunch of like-minded talented people.”

"It's exciting to join the 'Lovemarks' company,” said Kailas. “The Saatchi philosophy on brands goes beyond establishing mere performance. The  challenge of finding a deeper connection and building a relationship with the consumer is what drew me to Saatchi. It recognises disruptive thinking; this coupled with a great mix of brands and people will be an interesting platform to create solid work."
