Leading Email Agency President Gets Top Award from American Marketing Association

That agency was acquired with its 275 employees in 2013 by Publicis Groupe and then merged internally with Moxie, creating the largest digital agency in the Southeast. In 2014, Raj was hired as a CEO for the award-winning social Ad Tech company BLiNQ Media, providing new vision and rebuilding its technology teams.
Choudhury formally joined BrightWave as President in 2016, helping the company reach new heights in revenue, industry recognition and helping the company continue to develop and expand its end to end services within email and eCRM.
