Taunya Renson-Martin, chair of EO Europe, supports Mehta’s dedication and entrepreneurship. “Our organisation is driven by enthusiastic entrepreneurs who actively inspire each other in every way. As head of Marketing & Communications at EO Belgium, Priyanka proved time and time again to be one such powerful leader.”
