Ogilvy Mumbai scores a double whammy at the AME

MUMBAI: Continuing its dominance at the ‘Effectiveness Awards’ shows, Ogilvy Mumbai enjoyed a stellar night at the AME’s (Asian Marketing Effectiveness Awards) held in Singapore on the 29 May.


Ogilvy South Asia executive chairman & creative director Piyush Pandey said, “I am truly delighted at this wonderful performance.  It is all due to opportunities given by clients and the fantastic delivery of our battery of young men and women.  We value effectiveness which is achieved through high levels of creativity. Cheers to Ogilvy Mumbai and Geometry Global (the activation arm of Ogilvy).”


On the back of big wins for Lifebuoy Roti & Google Reunion along with other wins on Vodafone, Mondelez, Fevicol and Akanksha, Ogilvy won a total of 17 metals thereby winning the twin titles of Asia Pacific’s Most Effective Agency Office of the Year & Media Strategy Agency of the Year. The AME’s recognise campaigns that demonstrate effectiveness in delivering a return on the marketing investment.


Commenting on the win Ogilvy Mumbai head of planning Kawal Shoor, who was at the awards said, "This reaffirms that obsession with ‘The Work’ pays. Everything else is irrelevant. Every time I went up on stage to pick a trophy, I felt there were many of us going up together - my creative and account partners, my planners and my friends who are called clients.  I wish my brother-in-arms, Navin was there with me as well.  Ogilvy Mumbai winning the agency-of-the-year in Asia Pacific not just for effectiveness, but for media - through a panoramic bunch of work - not just film, is a good sign that we're ready for tomorrow."


Ogilvy Mumbai head Navin Talreja added, “For the last two consecutive years we have won the title of the Most Effective Agency Office in the World but somehow Asia Pacific eluded us. Until now. At the beginning of the year, as an office, we committed to make it happen in Asia Pacific and so this is a wonderful feeling. A lot of blood, sweat and tears of creative teams, planners and account management has made this happen. A big salute to them all. And most importantly a big thank you to all our clients who keep partnering us and our crazy ideas helping us reach greater heights.”



Ogilvy India  national creative director Abhijit Avasthi, the man behind the work that wins in the market place concluded, “This win reinforces our belief in the power of creativity and the Ogilvy way of doing things. Our clients are our biggest supporters, so a big thank you to them.”
