“It was more of a homecoming for the client. We had a cutting edge strategy for this. Sensible creativity backed by aggressive plans is the mantra for success today,” said Amitabh Lahiri, Vice President and Branch Manager, Everest.

Manjot, Partner, Maxima Watches, seems very positive about the new venture. “We wanted the creative and buying to be with one entity. I wanted to bring everything under one umbrella and this makes them more accountable towards the client,” he said.
