There is a lot of vibrancy and energy flowing within. I am sure that Radhakrishnan will now be a part of it.

I am thrilled to set up and lead their programmatic offering and product standardisation, which is the need of the hour, and will help us add value to our clients. It's indeed a splendid opportunity to work with people who have a great vision and contribute to bring the ZOG Live RoI philosophy to life."
