GROUPM, Powered by Mindshare & M/SIX, Wins Malayasia Airlines Global Media Business

GroupM, the leading global media investment management operation, that is part of WPP, powered by Mindshare and m/SIX, has been appointed in Malaysia as the media agency for Malaysia Airlines.

Malaysia Airlines is the national flag carrier of Malaysia and a member of the oneworld airline alliance.

GroupM won the account following a competitive pitch, which included the incumbent IPG, Starcom, Havas, and Zenith. The appointment is effective May 1st 2016, and covers Global Channel Planning, Media Buying and Optimization, and Search Engine Marketing and Re-marketing. The entire global digital buying will be done by the Malaysia office.

The win came on the back of Mindshare and m/SIX pitching a proprietary framework “AIR” to Malaysia Airlines, that provides the client with dynamic audience segmentation and targeting capabilities.

Girish Menon, CEO of GroupM Malaysia said,“Malaysia Airlines is the most prestigious global Malaysian brand. We are excited to be their business partner. This appointment is a testament of the teams’ understanding of the dynamic consumer journey, and applying the insights through effective use of real time data and technology. With our proprietary planning framework of Adaptive Marketing, the team helped in sharing breakthrough ideas to the client.”
