As he prepares for a new role, I am excited that Ambika is coming on board to lead our team. She comes to us with a combination of strong foundation and rich digital experience on both client and agency sides. As we evolve our product from largely Internet driven to include mobile marketing and technology applications, we are looking forward to Ambika taking the Starcom IP offering to a new level.”
