Agency Report Card 2017: Grey Group India

We assess Grey'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: Grey Group India
In a quiet year otherwise, Grey India looked at solving market place challenges by leveraging the strength of the Indian woman. Examples for this came through campaigns for the Indian Air Force (ek ladki hoon mein) and Dell (ek behtar kal ka aarambh).

 
New clients that were signed in 2017 included Raymond. Dell and Indian Oil engaged the agency in projects too. The losses for the year included the digital duties for Mondelez Biscuits, Mondelez Silk and Piramal.
