McCann Erickson, Delhi has been assigned with the creative account of Maya Academy of Advanced Cinematics (MAAC) following a multi-agency pitch. Industry sources have pegged the account size to be upwards of Rs 10 crore. The incumbent agency was Akshar Advertising.

Ronald D’mello, MD and CEO, MAAC, said, “With the change in the business environment, it is very important to reach out to our audiences strategically. We were on the lookout for an advertising agency that would help us in evolving the brand to newer heights, and McCann’s previous track record suited us. In FY09, MAAC will substantially enhance its marketing budget and reach out to its audiences through an array of communication media.”

Commenting on the account win, Debashis Paul, Senior Vice-President and General Manager, McCann Erickson Delhi, said, “We are really excited about this new account.

This brand developmental work entails a very good understanding of young people seeking unconventional careers that has been ignited by the digital revolution. We are well equipped with that understanding and look forward to building the MAAC brand along with the client team.”
