Dentsu Inc. had recently acquired 51 per cent stake in Taproot India.

An under-30 achiever, Chakravarti joins Taproot from Grey Worldwide where she spent three years. With a total of eight years of experience, she has worked with Saatchi & Saatchi and JWT in the past.

“Apart from both of us there is a powerful team of 30-odd people who have played a huge role in what Taproot India is today, because we have been hand-picking people personally. Apart from great work we try and make sure the person is a great human being as well,” said Paddy. “While hiring it is very important for us to make sure the person fits into the existing culture seamlessly,” added Aggie.
