Because, to Jayant, marketing and branding are about challenging the status quo, and pushing boundaries with new technology and innovative thinking – a pursuit that helped him lead Intel’s global rebranding effort that, in 2013, resulting into Intel being named among the ‘Top 10 socially admired and loved brands’ in the world.
