Ramamurthy has major growth ambitions for Mena region. “We have been remotely servicing clients in Mena for a long time, and to further give impetus to our presence, we have recruited Al Banna as another senior resource to service our clients in the region.'
“Further, we are uniquely positioned in the marketplace: our clientele derives value from our ability to provide robust market intelligence, enabled through Synovate’s strong global presence; and clients partner with us to realize their global ambitions based on our proven strategy tools, to get a firm foothold in new markets and expand in existing ones,” Ramamurthy said.
