Lintas Media Group’s Kolkata office is on a roll. The agency has bagged the media duties of Bengal Shriram Hi-Tech City, Srei Infrastructure and National Jute Board, adding a total of Rs 50 crore to the agency’s billing.

Raghav Vohra, Assistant Vice President, SEZ, Bengal Shriram Hi-Tech City, said, “The fact that Lintas Media Group ranked second among the media ranking order and their successful media approaches to prominent brands made us choose LMG as our media partner. We look forward to communicate this message to the entire community together and are confident of having a long term association with them.”

Srei Infrastructure is very well positioned to reap the trillion dollar investment planned by the Government of India over XII Five Year Plan. “During Lintas Media Group’s (LMG) last association with us, we found Lintas team to have understood the holistic infrastructure business model of Srei and the media mix required to communicate this unique model to its key stakeholders. LMG’s task becomes very critical in evolving a strategic media fit to fulfil this task and they are best suited to deliver this,” said Braj Kishore, Vice President and Head - Corporate Communication and Brand Management, Srei Infrastructure.
