Sudhir Shetty, former Senior Vice President of Adfactors PR, has joined Strategic Growth Advisors (SGA) as the CEO of its Public Relations Practice.
At Adfactors, he had fostered PR and investor relations practices that served clients across varied sectors. He has overseen the communication strategies for M&As, handled crises, and managed corporate activities for key Indian and multinational companies. Shetty has over 16 years of experience working at Adfactors PR, before which he has also been a financial journalist for nine years.
Samir Shah, MD, SGA, said, “We are excited to have Sudhir taking the reins of our PR practice and partner with us in creating India’s best communications consulting practice. Over the last 12 years, SGA has dominated the Investor Relations space by redefining the profession and continuously evolving to adopt best practices focused on creating value for our clients. Our Corporate Reporting Practice has also grown manifold. Our philosophy is to collaborate with the best professionals in the space to offer the most distinguished consulting services to our client partners. We are committed to redefining the agency services offered in Public Relations to be more strategic consulting in nature. Sudhir brings the perfect mix of understanding of Public Relations, Media, Capital Markets and Investor psyche to lead the practice.”
Added Shetty, “I have been a silent observer and admirer of SGA over the years and in the way they conduct themselves while continuing to grow. Over the years, SGA has been instrumental in creating value for several clients through strategic consulting and disciplined dissemination of correct information to the investors’ community. With this DNA of in-depth analysis and deep understanding of client business, I’m confident that the PR practice too, can create a differentiated and niche approach, adding tremendous value to all its existing and potential PR clients.
“I am extremely thrilled to join the SGA team as they progress on the journey of creating value for the client through multiple channels of investor communications, media communications, corporate reporting and branding and design services.”
