Taneira - the women’s ethnic wear brand from Titan, the Tata group company has announced the appointment of Shalini Gupta as general manager – marketing, Category, Design, and Supply Chain. Shalini will lead the way to achieve the ambitious growth target set for FY23 by the brand by solidifying the brand value proposition.

I look forward to playing a role in making Taneira the most loved brand for women’s ethnic wear in India”.
