IMRB International, represented by Ameya Sawant and Neha Gahlaut from Mumbai, was declared first runner-up, while Evalueserve from Delhi was second runner-up.

Rana Barua, National Head-Marketing, Radio City, said, “The response we received for ‘Radio City MQ’ in the very first year of its inception has been overwhelming. The format, concept and execution of the contest have been appreciated by corporates nationally.”

Commenting on the win, Deutsche Bank’s Vibhendu Tewari said, “Thanks to the innovative rounds, the cheering audience and the pulsating atmosphere, we had an amazing time.” Tewari’s partner at the contest, Subhajit Chatterjee, added, “This was a welcome change from the routine work at office. I really wish more people would come up with such concepts, where we all could relax, chill and just have some fun.”

Hosted by Brian Tellis and host of Mumbai’s ‘Radio City Breakfast Show’ RJ Archana, the ‘Radio City MQ’ national finals saw two top scoring teams each from Mumbai (Deutsche Bank and IMRB International), Delhi (Evalueserve and Equinox) and Bangalore (BizTruss Integrated Services and Wipro Technologies) vie for the national title.
