On joining Geometry Encompass, Rahul said, “I am happy to be able to come back to Geometry Encompass, in many ways it’s almost like coming back home. In my new role, I hope to support the agency in its growth journey and to drive operational excellence across the portfolio of services. I look forward to leading this team of innovative disruptors.”
Welcoming Karwa aboard, Roshan Abbas, Founder and Managing Director, Geometry Encompass said, “In our attempt to build the agency of the future we are always on the search for new talent and sometimes we find people who have been on a journey with us before.
