Prasad Shejale, CEO and Co-founder, LS Digital, said, “We envision LS Digital becoming a global player in Digital Marketing Transformation (DMT) space. In order to realise this vision, we have appointed an industry veteran like Pawan to take the reins of the UK operations and replicate the growth we have seen in the MEA region. LS Digital already has a significant presence in Europe, specifically in UX and CX verticals. Now we will expand our focus, with UK as the base and Pawan at the helm, to include the entire DMT solution, which comprises Media, Creative, D&I, Innovation and Tech.”
