Arushi Sharma

Chtrbox, the data-powered influencer marketing company, announced the appointment of Arushi Sharma as the Head of Brand Partnerships and Strategy for Mumbai.

In her new role, Sharma will be responsible for steering the growth of the firm’s specialised influencer marketing business in Mumbai, while also contributing towards team and culture building and product innovation. She will also work towards setting newer benchmarks on how strategically and creatively can social media influencers be leveraged for brands and agencies in India.

Sharma has over eight years of diverse social media marketing and leadership experience across the UK, Singapore, Indonesia and India. Most recently, she was leading the social media team, including the influencer marketing division, for Iris Worldwide in Indonesia, and was previously with them in Singapore where she led the APAC digital command centre for Philips.

Among her many achievements, the highlights of her career have been winning the Bronze Social Campaign of the Year Award for Philips as well as being invited to speak at the Cannes Lions Festival 2016 held in France. She also managed the PR and digital launch of Spotify across South East Asia, which organically achieved No. 1 trending status for the brand worldwide.

Speaking about her association with Chtrbox, Sharma said, "In my experience across markets and sectors, the one thing that I have increasingly witnessed is the demand for authentic voices and storytelling in the social media space. It is exciting to work with a brilliant up-and-coming platform like Chtrbox that addresses the lack of consolidation on pricing and strong measurement models to give popular and emerging brands and influencers an effective and measurable way of partnering together. Together with this dynamic team, we are changing the way this space operates, and are excited to do more.”

On Sharma’s appointment, Pranay Swarup, Co-Founder and CEO, Chatterbox, said, “Arushi and I had connected almost a decade ago as colleagues and have been 'Facebook Friends' ever since. We've witnessed each other grow as professionals over the years, and I'm glad that we're now doing some disruptive work together. With Arushi's experiences across international markets, and the clientele and scale of work that she has managed, we are certain that she would provide newer avenues for Chtrbox to grow. I would like to take this opportunity to welcome Arushi again and wish her on a successful and fruitful journey with us at Chtrbox.”
