With Sathiraju coming on board, Maxus consolidates the senior management strength in the South, along with Kishankumar Shyamalan as GM South 1.

Commenting on the new appointment Verma added, “The media landscape is possibly at its most dynamic state today. It’s a time of rapid and big changes. Not only do we have to stay on top of this and ensure that we incorporate the new state of things in the way we do the communication planning for our brands, we also have to ensure executional excellence so that strategy translates to reality. On top of it, in today’s uncertain economic conditions, our media monies have to result into tangible business results for our brands. All of this means, more engagement and more speed at the senior management level.
