Agency Report Card 2017: FCB Ulka

We assess FCB Ulka's 2017 performance in India, based on its business results, its innovation and initiatives, its work and awards and its people and leadership.

Agency Report Card 2017: FCB Ulka
FCB Ulka got its nutrition for growth in 2017 through one of the big account wins of the year – Horlicks. And while it lost ZEEL, Tata Chemicals and Techno Mobiles, other account wins for the year included SBI Mutual Fund, Rooh Afza (and other Hamdard brands) and Tata Docomo Business Services.
While the agency lost its NCD for digital, Gerard Jayaranjan, there were plenty of new hires, specifically for the Horlicks team. A dedicated team was set up for the same. 
Jyotsana Singh Kaushik joined to lead the account. Shalini Rao was appointed later in the year as head of planning for the product portfolio.
