Axis Bank has shifted its media business to MediaVest Worldwide, an agency belonging to the Starcom MediaVest Group (SMG). MediaVest would handle the business from its Mumbai office. The account was earlier with Madison Media.

The mandate covers media planning and buying for all Axis Bank campaigns and is effective August 1, 2012. Industry sources estimate the account to be at Rs 70 crore.

With its Human Experience Strategy and approach, we believe, it is well poised to handle the media challenges lying in front of Axis Bank for the future."

This prestigious win adds to the long list of new business wins for Starcom MediaVest Group since last year that includes Aircel, Dabur, Novartis, Supermax, Zee Learn, Sterling Holidays, etc.
