Reliance Communication awards wireless biz creative to Grey

After dividing its media biz between OMD and MEC, Reliance Communications has now moved its wireless business to Grey Worldwide. The account comprises all offerings of Reliance Communications, including the 3G launch.

According to industry sources, the pitch process was initiated six weeks back. The agencies in the fray included JWT India, McCann Erickson, Mudra and incumbent Cartwheel.

In an official statement, Jishnu Sen, COO, Grey India, said, “This is huge. A win this big, a win against industry biggies, is a huge testament to the new Grey. We are on the way to being the most famously effective agency in the country. The thing that stood out in this pitch, according to me, is teamwork and passion. Across disciplines. Across levels. From the insight we cracked, to its strategic context and then finally culminating in some outstanding creative work. Every piece was right! From the seniormost to the juniors. From Nirvik and Bindu and Amit and Malvika to every person who worked on this pitch, gave it their best. Every round, every little bit of work. That’s what we bring to all our clients. I believe that this is the first of many such announcements from Grey.”

In the past few months, Grey has won several new businesses, including Dabur, Fererro and Bharti Axa General Insurance. It is understood that several other pitches have also been successful.

Grey is one of India’s largest integrated agencies and was voted exchange4media Digital Agency of the Year for 2010.
