Indrajit Sabharwal, Managing Director, Simmtronics said, “We have very aggressive plans for the year and wanted a like-minded partner on board. It was a tough fight between equally competent agencies. Havas Media’s response, the understanding of our brief, the customised media solution recommended and their huge passion for our business was something we were looking for. We are pleased to have them as our partner and are sure they will contribute significantly to our business growth.”
“The Havas knowledge of the mobile and telecom industry was impressive. Moreover, they have worked with prominent brands, know how to build a brand amid the clutter today and how to position it appropriately,” added Smarth Bansal, Brand Manager, Simmtronics.
