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.”
