Sundeep Sharma, Motivator Delhi Head, has put in his papers and will take a short break. Motivator is a division of GroupM. From indications, Sharma is likely to start a new venture in a few months, which will specialise in developing a software tool for media, planning and buying agencies.
Sharma has an experience of 18 years in media and started with Lintas where he worked for a year. He then moved on to WPP where he spent 10 years. He was part of the setup team for Maximize under GroupM. When the GroupM management decided to launch Motivator, another independent media arm, Sharma was seconded from Maximize with the responsibility of launching the brand in Delhi.
Said Sharma about his quitting, “Motivator and GroupM are doing very well. My decision to leave the agency was to explore some new avenues of business. I haven’t yet decided anything about the future and am taking a short break from the industry.”
