“I am very excited about the opportunity to work at Edelman – a firm that has clearly distinguished itself through its work both in India and globally. I am particularly keen about consolidating the South India operations for the firm and building and growing the business overtime. I’m looking forward to a great experience,” said Sen.

Sen has over 17 years of experience across the marketing spectrum including advertising, event management, corporate communications and public relations, with companies such as Perfect Relations, Gulf Finance House, Team Young & Rubicam, Leo Burnett, and Rediffusion DY&R.

She also strategised the launch for PertPlus (Rejoice) and Pepto-Bismol in Southeast Asia, including India. In her last assignment with Perfect Relations as Regional Head – Strategy and Direction, she built the Bangalore branch from scratch in less than two years.
