His 13 years of experience across FMCG, Telecom and Digital Media in Sales and Marketing sectors will enable him to tap the potential growth areas at Roposo.

He will focus on setting up advertising revenue strategies and will look at interest-based local hyper targeting systems for advertisers. Before heading the ad business for Ananda Bazar Patrika's digital arm, he was the founder of Ideacts Innovations, a Sequoia and SVB funded internet startup, where Saurabh developed the entire ad sales structure and business from scratch into a thriving model.

As the company has been crossing one milestone after the other, with a user base of three million and its ever growing popularity among celebrities and enthusiasts alike, these new appointments highlight function expansion within the team.
