It is a huge moment of pride as this is the first win for us as Wavemaker. We couldn’t have asked for a better start to this year.”

Says Navin Khemka, Managing Partner, Wavemaker India, “Working with Perfetti, one of the largest confectionery manufacturers in the world, has been a great experience right from the start of this journey. We have together built iconic brands and continue to deliver unmatched media value for them.”
