Sonia Gill, Indian National, Marketing and Advertising Professional with 15 years of work experience in the marketing and communication field.
Before going on a sabbatical Sonia was with Infosys Ltd, an Indian Multi National - Information Technology firm. She has successfully spearheaded large marketing projects in her role as marketing lead for the BPO unit of Infosys. Having grown within the company, she has enjoyed working with very learned people, from across the world.
Before Infosys, Sonia was with Visa Cards as Marketing Manager for South Asia ( India, Pakistan, Srilanka, Nepal and Bangladesh). It was by far one of her most favorite stints, as a non Banking professional, coming from a hard core advertising back ground.

She has also worked with J.Walter Thompson and Ogilvy and Mather, some of the leading advertising firms across the globe.
