It is a real tribute to our team's efforts and I'm immensely proud of them." He further added, "Infact the occasion marked a great day for the Indian advertising as Piyush Pandey (Group President & National Creative Director, O&M India) was also named as the creative person of the year, Asia-Pacific 2002 in the same award ceremony."

Ashutosh Srivastava, Managing Director, MindShare India expressed similar feelings, "When we started, people said that it won't be an easy task but today, with this award, we have proved ourselves beyond doubt. And I think the credit goes to the entire team of WPP Media," he said.
