AAAI Prez Elections: Contestants gear for final decision, to be announced today

It has been the most hyped Advertising Agencies Association of India (AAAI) President elections ever. Today – July 30, 2010 – all conversations will finally culminate into action, when members of the AAAI will vote on who they think should take the AAAI President Chair. The choice is between old hand Nagesh Alai, Executive Director, Interface Communications, and challenger Dentsu India’s Chairman, Sandeep Goyal.

In a conversation with exchange4media on his thoughts before the final announcement is made, Sandeep Goyal said, “I have nothing personal against my opponent. If I win, I will be happy to invite him to join the EC (executive committee) and use his wise counsel. It is my commitment that I will carry all industry seniors, and current EC members, with me as a well-knit and cohesive team. I will try my best to use their past experience on the EC, yet provoke discontinuity and review wherever necessary.”

Nagesh Alai’s thoughts are not very different either. He told exchange4media, “At the end of the day, this is all for what would be good for the AAAI and the causes it stands for, for the betterment of the advertising industry. The decision is now in the hands of the electorate, and I am sure they will base their decision on merit.”
