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.
