More than two decades of successfully partnering clients in building famous brands across two advertising agencies (Ogilvy and Grey).

I respect Malvika for her fine design thinking ability, entrepreneurial spirit and her hunger to create great work that works."

With the backing of the robust, truly collaborative DAN network and teams and a solid, go-getter business partner in Simi, I get to play that fancy word, intrapreneur for real. And continue to place the brand, at the golden intersection of ideas (of course), but also design and technology, for all our amazing clients.
