Insignia Worldwide

Gaurav Sinha

Founder & CEO

A progressive and passionate thought leader in the luxury, travel and lifestyle marketing sector, Gaurav Sinha has been working in the Middle East for the past 25 years and is known as an innovator in creative strategy.

Founding Insignia in 2003, Gaurav stands as the visionary mastermind behind the region’s first brand enrichment consultancy, specializing in travel and destination creation. As a creative protagonist, Gaurav has accumulated a formidable portfolio of achievements that has solidified his status as an internationally recognized leader in his field.

Prior to launching Insignia, Gaurav spent a decade in advertising at Lowe. He then took on the role of head of marketing for Hilton Worldwide in the Arabian Gulf between 1998 and 2002. It was during this time that he faced a unique challenge – finding creative agencies who understood how to sell luxury experiences as opposed to products.

In 2014, Gaurav was voted Indian Entrepreneur of the Year by Entrepreneur Middle East magazine and has enjoyed a variety of accolades such as being listed at #11 in Arabian Business magazine’s Top 100 Most Powerful Indians in the UAE (2017). As much a philanthropist as an entrepreneur, Gaurav believes strongly in giving back and in 2009, with his wife Lucy Bruce, set up Harmony House, a day shelter for the underprivileged in India.
