Commenting on Fernandes new position, Mudra Group CEO and managing director Madhukar Kamath said, "Jude has been a source of great strength for the Mudra Group. He is our rock and a true leader. His promotion is recognition of his fabulous work over the years, particularly as the head of Mudra Mumbai. It is also a statement of our aggressive growth plans, we need talent of his quality to help us define the Group's strategic direction, strengthen our offering to clients and improving our product."

I think he is an excellent advertising mind, a great account man and a terrific team leader. He is just the right guy to continue the good work Jude has done. I have great regard for Ani's proven abilities in organization building, and I'm sure he'll revel in the challenge of taking Mudra Mumbai to the top"

Banerjee said, "I am tremendously excited about the challenge of leading Mudra Mumbai. The agency already has an enviable roster of clients and from what I hear, a couple of large ones in the pipeline and more importantly great relationships with each one of them. I've been handed a healthy operation and good talent. I couldn't ask for more!"
