Ms Sinha, a veteran Human Resource professional, joins Cheil from Evalueserve. She started her career in the manufacturing industry and moved on to Advertising in 2006 as HR Director to Delhi JWT. Advertising gave the opportunity to hone her skills in managing people without letting go the bottom line. From 2008 till 2010 she went into a consultant mode and worked with different industries. However the lure of advertising proved stronger and she has returned this time albeit at Cheil.
