That’s where Entropia gets it right – with its white sheet approach and track record of delivering impactful and iconic marketing solutions for clients. I’m looking forward to adding my own perspective to the mix.” Prashant Kumar, founder and senior partner at Entropia, added, “It’s high time integrated media services are led by leaders who have native credibility in the digital and eCommerce arena, yet understand the time and place for all media.”
