The changing consumer behavior, shifting viewer choices, increased inclination towards environmentally conscious practices, etc., demand brands to deliver more creative and personalized experiences in a sensitized tone. Therefore, one of the major priorities for me will be to deliver business outcomes for clients through impactful ideas and new storytelling channels."

He further added, "I am excited to work with the talented team and develop work that drives significant change in perception."
