S Suresh, Business Head, BharatMatrimony.com said, “We have zeroed in on Hanmer and Partner Chennai, after a multi-agency pitch which featured the best of the PR agencies.

Our communications strategy was presented based on careful analysis of the PR initiatives in the past and with focus on clarity in terms of positioning. Greater impetuous was also given to their regional brands to ensure that the local relevance factor is leveraged to the maximum.
