A Noteworthy Journey

RMA Media embarked on its journey with humble origins under the guidance of Kuka's father-in-law, Ronny Mistry, in 1982. At that time, the concept of international advertising was largely unexplored by Indian companies. Kuka joined the company in 1991 and swiftly ascended to the position of CEO by 1997.

Infact his son Rushad Kuka joined the company and he looks after Brand Management and Business Development. The three generations involved in RMA are determined to carry forward the legacy of the Founder, Ronny Mistry (Kuka's father in-law).

Over the span of four decades, the company has experienced steady growth, evolving into a powerhouse headquartered in Mumbai, with a widespread presence across the nation. Offices are strategically positioned in key cities including Chennai, Hyderabad, Delhi, Bangalore, Kolkata, and Cochin, among others. Kuka believes ‘People make the Organization’ and he is proud that most of his colleagues have been part of the RMA family from the time of its inception. Kuka continues to follow the principles left behind by the Founder Ronny Mistry and leads his dedicated team with ‘The values of the old and the spirit of the new'.

"We exclusively represent the top ranking titles from each global market. When Indian clients engage with us, we provide comprehensive information and expert guidance, enabling them to make informed decisions about their advertising investments. Our goal is to optimize our every client's reach within their designated market while maximizing the value of their budget", concludes Kuka.
