Milestone Lastmile was launched in the western region a year back and already services some of the leading clients such as Barclays Bank, Dhanlakshmi Bank, ICICI, LG and Tata Indicom, to name a few. Milestone Brandcom will leverage its learning and network presence at the local level in context with the environment and shopper profile to provide a complete experience stimulating brand sales.
Talking about the expansion news, Nabendu Bhattacharyya, Founder & Managing Director, Milestone Brandcom, said, “We needed to expand to make our service offerings across India for existing clients’ as well potential client base. All brands need marketing solutions hence integration is the need of the hour. Milestone Brandcom with over 70 brands on board is the ideal platform for brand to expect the full service offering. We are looking at high end of retail designing and implementation in line with international retail designing and solution while every foreign brand is looking at India as the growing consumption destination. We would be looking at investment in the space by creating world-class production set up, which will create a differentiator.
