Speaking on the appointment, Pratik Gupta, Co-Founder, FoxyMoron and Zoo Media, said, “Over the last two and half years of working with Aarushi, we realised the immense potential that she brought with her. She was able to work with complex business challenges with extremely scalable solutions at a lightning pace. Looking at all of the above, we decided to work with her to structure and scale our newest agency, Pollen. Whilst there is immense business potential with clients across the board, the business needs a lot of organising and also avenues of focussed growth; which is what we envision to achieve under Aarushi’s leadership. While we’ve been at work for over a year, we’ve recently handed over the P&L responsibilities to Aarushi and the results have been amazing to see so far. We’re looking forward to working closely with her and creating a highly scalable and profitable business”

Expressing her delight at the appointment, Aarushi added, “Before we even started Pollen, FoxyMoron provided influencer services to clients. When we looked deeper, we realised that the entire landscape is exploding and has huge potential for growth. We’re excited about the future of Pollen, we’ve spent the last few quarters building business models that seamlessly combine our expertise – on creative technology, SEO, ORM and video production, across our network, to provide impactful solutions for brands using content creators . Since customisation is the biggest advantage of digital today, we’ve been working closely with regional content creators to produce vernacular and localised content for brands.
