Mark Hannant

Managing director

I'm an entrepreneur and adventurer based in the megacity of Mumbai. My professional life has been spent in branding and corporate communications. I began my career as a business journalist and writing has been a consistent theme for more than two decades. I relocated from London in 2009. I was excited by 'emerging market' opportunities and saw India as both an interesting market and as a base from which to provide services.
