experience he moved to online design, where he fell in love with the medium.

Chief Technology Officer
Vikas Sah made it out of IIT, New Delhi with a Bachelor's Degree in Chemical Engineering. Next on his to-do list was a Master's in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of Buffalo, New York. Satisfied with his conquests in the field of education, he dived into the world of technology and online marketing. Not one to swim slow, Vikas worked with several web technology start-ups and was even a founding member of some of them. Before Indigo Consulting scooped him out, he was zapping the competition as CEO of Zitz Solutions and pushing tech on everyone as the CTO of Empowered Media. Did you think he was really done with picking up professional qualifications? Nope, he also grabbed the PMP (Project Management Professional) credential offered by the Project Management Institute.
In case you're getting the impression Vikas was an 'all work, no play' dull boy, you should know his soft-spoken nature hides a terrible secret. The man's a gadget freak with a truly frightening love for the horror and thriller genres, so you don't want to know what's going on in that head...
Vice President & Director - Client Services.
Another veteran of the online industry in India,
Priti started her career with the highly successful Online Solutions (eventually
sold to Intiqua) in the late nineties. At Indigo Consulting, Priti oversees
client services and project management from strategy to execution.
Over the years at Indigo Consulting, Priti has shaped
many of the company's success stories and much of its culture. Don't let
her diminutive size fool you - she is a strong-willed woman, a complete
live-wire, and her kick on the shin packs quite a punch (ask anyone at
Team Indigo). And if you hear the words "One Up, One Down", run a mile.
Don't ask why, just run!

No doubt, his unique brand of innovation carried him through the Indian School of Business, Hyderabad, and the Stanford Graduate School of Business, Stanford.
Harshit loves teaching and has been sharing his extensive knowledge at over half a dozen business schools. On weekends you can find him in the kitchen, cooking up a storm of deliciousness for his wife and son.
And when he isn’t busy exploring the future of mobile marketing,
Satwick, an urban history buff, can be found exploring the pasts of cities
the world over, or buried into a book with a cup of tea that has no milk
and no sugar. Yes, we don’t see the point either!
Head of Mobile Marketing
Satwick is a master in the art of mobile marketing. Give him
a brand and he will tell you 10 ways to market it on a mobile phone.
Having worked with two global leaders – Infosys & Dentsu – Satwick
can combine the best of technology with media. Satwick’s experiences
from both the industries, along with his understanding of the mobile medium,
