R K Swamy BBDO has been quietly adding on to its business bagging as many as 17 accounts in seven months.
The clients in its kitty include P&G Gillette brands, Faber Castell, Shriram Transport Finance, Dell Information Services, Apollo Hospitals, Suguna Poultry Farm, Keane, Syndicate Bank, Webex, Edelweiss Securities, Singer, United Bank of Switzerland, National Insurance, Senco Gold, Ishtaa Gold Jewellery, Universal Diary Products and Paradeep Phosphates.
The agency’s Pharma Services Division has won assignments from Bayer, Cipla, Glenmark and GSK in the recent past.
“The capitalised billings from these would exceed Rs 100 crore. This growth has come on top of the good growth in 2005 as well,” said Srinivasan K Swamy, CEO, R K Swamy BBDO.
Anticipating further growth, the agency has invested in young talent. This year the agency has inducted into its system over 35 MBAs from various institutes and has also conducted extensive training and workshop sessions for its employees.
“Talent acquisition and retention is critical for our growth and our emphasis on this is more than ever. In R K Swamy BBDO alone we are targeting to go over 400 people in the next few months,” Swamy added.
