<b>John Zeigler</b>, President & CEO, DDB Asia Pacific, Japan & India?blur=25

<p align=justify>Let’s put it this way, we won’t create any confusion; we would clarify the brand offering that is relevant to local as well as to international clients and would help clients to make the right decision on which area they want to be the most serviced in. From the Mudra point of view, that gives Mudra the opportunity to clearly be the competitive brand and it gives DDB the opportunity to clearly be the international corporate. As a creative organisation, we don’t want to change local cultures or re-orientate them to western minds and that is where our local and international talent comes in.
