“The transition to Chetan and Amit has been well-planned, as the duo have been carefully groomed to take on these leadership roles because of their complementary skills. Chetan brings a sharp business savvy and operational excellence to the role, while Amit is an aggressive business developer, networker and growth champion”, said Glenn Osaki.

Together the Co-MDs will lead the India rollout of MSLGROUP’s new go-to-market strategy and planning methodology based on insight, integration and impact. Chetan Mahajan and Amit Misra will also build synergies at the group level by breaking down silos, sharing resources, increasing talent development opportunities, driving thought leadership, and making strategic investment decisions that support key geographies, practices and innovation.

Jaideep Shergill’s new business venture will feature advisory for Indian start-ups, including M&A, investment strategies and mentoring young/smart entrepreneurs. Its not clear yet what association the new venture will have with MSL.

“It’s an exciting business plan that complements – and does not conflict with our MSLGROUP business, and we wish Jaideep great success”, said Glenn Osaki.
