TBWA\ is one of the world’s best networks and it’s an honour to be part of the team. Furthermore, Disruption, I believe, is a powerful philosophy and I look forward to working with the team at TBWA\ to produce breakthrough strategies and creative work for our clients.” TBWA\India’s Managing Director, Nirmalya Sen added, “What struck us about Meenakshi is her restlessness to go beyond conventional thinking and her belief in designing interesting conversations with consumers beyond the conventional 30-second format.
