She has previously worked in consumer consulting at Technopak, was senior vice-president at TNS India and has worked with the BAT group in India.



Reddy said, ?I?m delighted to be leading such a diversified and vibrant business which continues to define research in the region. We have a great team of experienced and highly competent managers to head our different businesses and I look forward to working with them to build IMRB into an even bigger and better business.?
