MUMBAI: Motivator, one of the country’s leading media agencies has retained the Apple brand media mandate for the iPhone iPad and Mac product. The account is under the Ingram Micro & Redington account, the exclusive distributors for Apple products in India.

Motivator won the account after a month long pitch process in December. The pitch process included higher weight for strategic strength, ability to think fresh ideas and execute them in alignment with Apple guidelines, Digital capability and precision execution.

In the last few months, the iPhone grew by 400% on the back of its new product launches and Buy Back offers. Ingram Micro and Redington decided to put the Iphone business on review given their ambitious growth plan.

Rabe. T. Iyer, Managing Partner, Motivator confirmed the news and affirmed that a top team is already in place to deliver from Feb 1st onwards. “Apple’s Iconic status coupled with ‘less is more’ approach puts a huge responsibility in building cutting edge solutions keeping to the brand standard, we have successfully done this for the last 14 months and are confident of pushing the envelope further to win in the market place”.
