Madison Media has started 2019 with a bang by winning the account of Indian FMCG company Marico. The mandate encompasses all media including digital. Last year, in a pitch supervised by ATK, Madison Media had lost the account. The account had moved to Lodestar UM last year. This year the account went again on pitch.
Commenting on this development, Vikram Sakhuja, Partner & Group CEO Madison Media & OOH, said, “We are absolutely delighted to win back the prestigious Marico account. We are confident that we will be their true business partner and substantially contribute to their growth story. We are happy that Marico evaluated our cutting edge Digital expertise and found us as the right fit.”
Koshy George, Chief Marketing Officer, Marico Limited commented, “We look forward to this partnership with Madison Media. The agency brings in an expert team whose creative ideas and approach resonate with our ethos. It is critical to have a team combining creativity, expertise and execution excellence in today’s fragmented media landscape to drive value.”
