India shines at Media Agency of the Year Awards 2008

Indian agencies and Indian professionals have done well at the Media Agency of the Year Awards that were held in Singapore on December 10, 2008. Ogilvy India, McCann Erickson, GroupM and JWT India were some of the agencies that received accolades.

The Media Planner/Buyer of the Year was Anupama Biswas, the youngest Senior Business Director in GroupM India, who was instrumental in winning the Procter & Gamble India pitch for MediaCom.

The Business Development Person was awarded to Kunal Jeswani, who rose from Account Director at Enterprise Nexus Mumbai to his current position as Senior Vice-President of Ogilvy & Mather Mumbai in eight years. He has 32 direct reports and currently heads a group of businesses at Ogilvy Mumbai, which includes Unilever Beverages, where he plays a regional role managing seven brands across four countries. The Runner-up was none other than OgilvyAction President Nabendu Bhattacharyya, who heads the out-of-home division of Ogilvy & Mather India, with growth expected to reach by 23 per cent in 2008. The second Runner-up was Vikram Menon, Vice-President and MD for the Lenovo hub of Ogilvy Worldwide Bangalore – the first agency to handle a global account out of India.

Ogilvy was also declared the Network of the Year.

Agnello Dias won the Runner Up as the Creative of the Year.

In the India & Subcontinent Office category, the winner was McCann Erickson Mumbai. In 2008, McCann Mumbai not only retained the majority of its existing accounts, but also scored 22 new business wins, including Reliance Capital and Aditya Birla Retail. Meanwhile, clients such as Western Union, Microsoft, Coca-Cola, Perfetti and Intel look to McCann Mumbai as a global think hub. The Runner-up was JWT Mumbai. With a staff member of 157, JWT Mumbai’s new business wins have accounted for 39 per cent of total revenue, with names like Kingfisher Airlines, Brylcreem and Argos.
