In all, Barua has close to 12 years of experience in the field of advertising. She started her career in 1995 with Bates Enterprise in Kolkata (then Clarion), where she worked on the Gold Flake account.

Her next stint was with Rediffusion DY&R, where she looked after the team servicing Colgate-Palmolive. She was instrumental in the creation of the Colgate Gel 'Talk to Me' campaign.
Remarks Srivastava, "Shavon comes with great experience of working on big brands such as Colgate, Lakme and Marico. Her understanding of the functioning process of the advertising business is comprehensive. Euro would benefit from her knowledge in taking the recently acquired Reckitt Benckiser account further in the market."
