Mehta said, ?The opportunity to impact client?s business by combining cutting edge technology with creativity has compelled me to take up this assignment with Razorfish." He further added that, "In India, businesses at large have started acknowledging the active role that digital and technology can play in building their brands, and are gearing up to embrace this new world order. In fact, there are organizations that have started institutionalizing social thinking across departments".
