Over the years Gupta has brought invaluable expertise to the many dynamic brands handled by IBD India including SSK Group, Panasonic, PNB Housing, Tupperware, Taj Group of Hotels, and K Raheja Corp.  Going forward, Gupta’s in-depth knowledge of brands and the dynamics within which they operate will enable him to continue to offer unique and innovative integrated brand development solutions and creative strategies for the many successful brands handled by MASH Advertising and IBD India.
