Commenting on Gupta’s new role, Pratap Bose, said, “We realise that as we grow in size and capabilities, a centralised control of vision and strategy is key to focused growth deliverables. Our key challenge in the medium and long term will be to manage organisational complexities, maintain market focus, and keep our offering clearly differentiated. As CSO, Anurag will be the ‘go to’ person for all such strategic shifts and execution. He brings a unique blend of organisational planning, creativity, entrepreneurship and a deep understanding of the business to this role and is the right person to take up this challenge.”

My new role will enable me to evolve Mudra Max to the next level, by bringing in fresh ideas, fresh offerings and new ways of doing business. I am thrilled about the prospects offered by this position and look forward to delivering consistent results. I firmly believe that today the Mudra Group is the best place to be if you have the passion and drive for new ideas.”

Anurag is best suited to take on the role of not only developing the critical strategic framework that will integrate all of Max’s specialist units to deliver this, but also driving them to work together on a common platform, with a common vision,” said Madhukar Kamath, MD & CEO, Mudra Group.
