Agencies launching new units, media houses launching new channels, top level management restructure, some strategic joint ventures – the year 2010 saw it all, reiterating a resurgent industry. And then there was the business of the Reckitt Benckiser account and the keenly contested AAAI elections – truly action-packed.
In its process of looking at the creative product the organisations and finding ways to increase its creative performance, Nic k Brien, CEO, McCann Worldgroup, has formed a Creative Leadership Council. The leadership role as Chairman of this Council has been bestowed on Prasoon Joshi, Executive Chairman and Regional Executive Creative Director, Asia Pacific, McCann Erickson.
“The year 2009 was tough for us, especially for the Mumbai branch, as we handle many financial and retail clients out of here, which were the two sectors that were mostly affected... But at the same time, we fortunately had some good business wins, and as a result the McCann Worldgroup India did really well... our unconventional advertising streams generated a lot... As far the growth target is concerned, we are cautiously optimistic,” says Prasoon Joshi, Executive Chairman & Regional Executive Creative Director, McCann Worldgroup.
