Announcing the name of the winner, AAAI president and JWT CEO Colvyn Harris stated that "Pandey is indeed an inspiration to everyone and the most deserving recipient of this year‘s award."

"Pandey has won so many personal accolades that the industry is justifiably proud to claim him as an icon of professionalism and creativity.

More recently, under his leadership, the Ogilvy & Mather creative team let loose the adorable Vodafone zoo zoos and set the country ablaze. It went on to capture every possible media space and imagination.
