Sandeep Sharma has joined R K Swamy Media Group as President. He takes over from Chintamani Rao, who is moving into another role in the company as Senior Advisor.

In a prepared statement, Shekar Swamy, Group CEO, R K Swamy Hansa, said, “We are delighted to have Sandeep lead this group. Our media service has seen very good growth over the past year. It serves the needs of over 75 advertisers across the country, delivering tremendous results to them. Sandeep’s mandate is to build on the quality of the service, even as he helps the group to engage wider and deeper with leading advertisers.”

In a career spanning 22 years, Sharma has been in senior leadership roles in revenue, brand and key client relationship management across media, advertising & brand management.

Commenting on his new assignment, Sandeep Sharma said, “R K Swamy Media group has a great set of clients and a high quality team across offices. I am excited to build further on the excellent work done so far and aggressively grow the business while retaining our focus on best quality service and superior media solutions to our clients.”
