With their deep knowledge of the Godrej brand and their unique approach it will be a win-win partnership for us.” Said  Shireesh Joshi‎ COO, Strategic Marketing Group at Godrej, confirming the news to exchange4media.

“The Godrej Masterbrand is more than a mandate, it is a responsibility. Especially given the fact that it straddles such a varied portfolio from FMCG to real estate to consumer durables, across multiple geographies. We spent a year and a half getting a deep understanding of the history, the culture and the legacy of Godrej before even attempting to pitch for the Masterbrand. Creativeland looks forward to contributing strategically towards an ever evolving and contemporary Godrej Masterbrand.” Said Sajan Raj Kurup Founder & Creative Chairman Creativeland Asia, on winning the mandate.
