Bhadkamkar said, “Heeru has been an integral part of WATConsult's growth story. She has led the agency alongside Rajiv in the capacity of CFO and CHRO and has an intimate understanding of this business. She works very closely with the leadership team at the Agency and across DAN and is uniquely positioned to take on the role of Chief Executive Officer at WATConsult. I am excited to have Heeru lead WATConsult on its next phase of growth alongside Rajiv, who now takes charge as the agency's Chief Mentor & Advisor."
“After leading WATConsult for the last 13 years, it’s time I move on to a new phase in this journey,” Rajiv Dingra said. “This new role would allow me to help guide the team in crafting an ambitious vision and would also allow the team at WATConsult to scale up in newer roles and achieve their own personal growth.”
