Mahul’s work was recognised as a commentator and writer on luxury brands and brand custodian of mjunction, India’s largest B2B e-commerce company.
Mahul said, “I am happy that my humbled contribution towards building brands has been recognised by CMO Asia. I thank mjunction and CEO Mr Vinaya Varma for trusting me with the brand. God has been kind that my book Decoding Luxe has received love, appreciation and encouragement from its readers, which include political and corporate stalwarts. Through my writings and my book I have tried to help luxury brands understand the Indian market from a strategic perspective. I also aim to free luxury from a myopic notion limited to price tags and help more and more people to start looking beyond the dazzle.”
