CMO50 2022 #6: Yash Gandhi

It’s not often you come across a long-established poultry business investing in a plant-based protein alternative. But that’s exactly what Yash Gandhi got Baiada to do over the last two years.

The launch of LiSTNR in February 2021 marked the biggest change in Southern Cross Austereo’s strategic direction from broadcast to personalised digital audio at scale.
