Also key in Vocanic’s plans for 2015 are its technological capabilities.

Chief technology officer Shreeniwas Iyer said “We see growing opportunities in 2015 to deploy advanced technology through products and social campaigns to service the new needs of our clients. We are ramping up our Tech Delivery functions in response to this demand.”

Kanika Agarwal has joined Vocanic from Microsoft’s regional communications team to take on the role of a digital project manager. Originally from India, Agarwal moved to Singapore six years ago and holds a strong background in Technology and Marketing. Meanwhile Sonal Mahajan has come on board as systems engineer for Vocanic’s social media flagship product- VSocial. She has worked in software consulting and financial firms prior to this new role.

"This second round of hires for 2015 represents our continued expansion plans in 2015. It is in line with the increased opportunity in the social space Vocanic is accessing via our GroupM partners and our direct relationships,” said regional business development lead Liam McCance.
