Director Contemporary Connect
Meher Gupta, Director Contemporary Connect is a force to reckon with in the world of Luxury Brand Management. Contemporary Connect stood out from its inception in 2014, started off as the brain child of one girl who wanted to bridge the gap between Indian brands and their International contemporaries. A name to reckon with in the world of golf from a young age, placing at top five in the under eighteen category, this tomboy had her first brush with fashion walking the ramp for Amrapali jewels and hasn’t looked back since. Awarded a scholarship for her first year at Lancaster on the basis of her golf, Meher took a stand and decided to pursue Corporate Law and Marketing in the United Kingdom, rejecting offers from LSR, Stephens and JMC. Working with Coca Cola after her undergrad she realized that her direction lay in Niche markets rather than Mass market, and decided to pursue luxury brand management from European Business School, London. Work experience with Companies like Michael Kors, Jimmy Choo and Bottega Veneta, the idea for Contemporary Connect was born. Working with Quintessentially and Genesis made her realize the scope for growth of companies in India was huge and all they needed was a guiding hand. Contemporary Connect is one of the few companies in India that has partner agencies in Paris and London, and works with a client base as diverse as Private Chartered Jets, Real-Estate to Fashion Designers like Manish Arora. With a young team, and an office that has progressed from her Bedroom to Connaught Place, Meher with her strategies of being more aggressive and versatile will invite you over for a beer and walk away with your contract.
