Our Team

  • Chaaya Baradhwaaj Founder - MD

    Chaaya sowed the seeds of BC Web Wise in 2000. Her work as a business journalist with magazines such as Businessworld and Business Today fuelled her belief in digital as a game changer for the modern Indian consumer as well as the most critical channel for the next level of business growth for Indian brands. But setting up and managing one of the few independently owned digital agencies in the country was no easy task. Keeping a watch on the constant transformation in a rapidly evolving digital industry, Chaaya has independently led BC Web Wise and established it as a leading agency with a reputed client portfolio and world class strategic brand solutions. Under her leadership, BC Web Wise has collected many honours, including the award for Best Growth Strategy (2016) by the Ascent Foundation, and being named among India’s best digital agencies by ET Brand Equity for six years in a row. A devoted follower of the teachings of Swami Bhagawan Shree Paramahamsa Nithyananda, Chaaya has inculcated the values of self-belief in the team at BC Web Wise leading us to where we are today. Respected as a digital guru and celebrated as an entrepreneur, Chaaya has been a speaker at several digital marketing seminars, round-tables, and is an active participant at educational forums for young professionals in the digital space. She has shared her expertise on esteemed juries in the advertising world, such as the New York Ad Fest and AAAI Goa Ad Fest on several occasions.

  • Asha Ravaliya Sr.V.P. – Finance

    Asha has a couple of things in common with the song 'Dil Hai Chhota Sa...' Just like the song is about dreaming big, Asha has been an integral part of our journey towards becoming a leading independent agency. And though not many know her penchant for 'doing shayari', she is quite full of melodious words and memorable one-liners. But beware, there is no 'bholi si Asha...'. A shrewd and seasoned finance professional, she has a lot of experience playing our in-house devil's advocate. If it is honest criticism you seek, she is your best hope. In an overly crowded digital ecosystem, she and her team keep us financially competitive and help our clients plan spends so that they can get the most out of their digital marketing budgets.

  • Media, SEO & Analytics

    Leeladhar Laheri VP - Media

    Prasad Pillai Seo Head

    Lee has a warning sign at his desk that says ‘The beast in me is sleeping, not dead.’ The sign doesn't really intimidate anyone though that is Lee’s intention down pat. People just don’t get intimidated by a guy who just enjoys the little things in life like cricket, football, and good weather. That doesn't stop Lee from trying though. Sometimes he'll start throwing a lot of difficult questions at the team. But all he gets is respect, for that helps us deliver our best in terms of strategy, planning, ad rates, and ROI for our clients. Sometimes he'll show up with a plaster around his arm and a swagger in his step. All it evokes is genuine concern, because the guy is a walking magnet for accidents and injuries.

    Prasad’s team is one of the most profitable SBU within BC Web Wise, thanks to keeping a consistent eye on head count and outsourcing work when needed, and working closely with the Finance head, even while ensuring client deliverables and business growth from SEO being delivered.
