Added Maharaj: “It’s thrilling to be back working with the group and the duo. Representing some exciting products in some exciting markets will be a precious opportunity to also learn while I lead. My objective will be to help them build valuable media brands while scaling up and fast tracking the revenue mandate. Adopting a transformational approach as against a transactional one has always been a key to differentiate brands from products and we pretty much are committed to lead our group in that direction from here on.”
