Yesudas confirmed the development and on his decision to move, he said, “It has been a fantastic career journey with Media Direction, where the company grew by leaps and bounds in stature. We managed to bag maximum number of businesses in 2007 and have done well in terms of profits, working with reputed clients and getting recognition and awards. My decision to move is personal and I would not like to elaborate on it.”

Having spent over 17 years in media, Yesudas has a firm belief in people power.

During his eight-year stint in India with the group, he added immense value to communication plans of various brands, ranging from FMCG to durables.
