Her forte lies in business development, providing counsel for building corporate equity, brand protection and crisis management.”

LinOpinion has been steadily growing year on year, with last year being characterised by several huge wins, besides regular client renewals. With our imminent foray into international markets, we need to gear ourselves for larger challenges. We are also entering new areas of business almost on a regular basis. This needs a robust, senior management team, hence the infusion of fresh talent. I can confidently say that LinOpinion today has PR professionals, best in their fields, in the country today. This has been part of the reason and will remain the key driver for our high growth and success.”
