J. Walter Thompson has featured at the No. 1 spot of the Gunn Report India agency ranking 2015. Contract Advertising, part of the J. Walter Thompson South Asia group ranked No. 3. This puts J. Walter Thompson South Asia group in an enviable position in this year’s Gunn Report India agency rankings.

Tarun Rai, CEO, J. Walter Thompson South Asia, said, "To have two of our group companies right at the top of the creative charts is really satisfying. This is an unprecedented achievement. I am really proud of the fantastic teams led by Senthil and Ashish.”

 J. Walter Thompson topped the ranking with maximum number of points in film (7) for the work done by its offices in Mumbai and Bangalore.

Delighted with the ranking, the newly appointed Chief Creative Officer of J. Walter Thompson India, Senthil Kumar said, “It’s a great start to the year with J. Walter Thompson India topping the Global Gunn Report India agency ranking. We have always gone in with all guns blazing for our clients with sharp ideas that strike the bull’s eye more often than not. And this honour only proves that my team has not just delivered the goods in the market place but also come out shining and with all guns blazing at the 2015 Gunn Report.”

He added, “We have won India’s only global recognition in Digital, Mobile and Social categories along with an All Guns Blazing performance in Film on the world stage. And we will work harder to stay on top of our game and build the reputation of J. Walter Thompson as the most creative agency in the country and beyond. Huge Congratulations to everyone at JWT India and also to Ashish and his fabulous team from Contract for making it to the Top 03 in the 2015 Gunn Report. Here’s to the work that will result in many more creative cheers and make our Country proud, our Clients succeed and take the business of big ideas to even greater heights.”

 Contract’s ranking of No. 3, comes with its overall tally of 6, with again the maximum score for Films.

Expressing his happiness, Ashish Chakravarty, NCD, Contract Advertising said, “While I am quite happy about the Gunn report rankings, I believe that awards (and therefore such rankings) are the by-product of the passion, and rigor that we put into our work. And the chemistry we create, with our colleagues and clients. The teams at Contract have been doing just that, since we came together, in 2013. So the many creative awards, new business wins, and rankings, only go to show that we are doing it right, maybe.”
