It’s no great surprise that the bulk of their business and the bulk of their accolades are due to companies with a Reliance ADAG lineage. Big 92.7 won the agency awards at Goafest and at the Bangalore Ad Club’s Big Bang. Reliance IPO picked up a silver at the BIg Bang as well and a nomination for the Emvies.
Still, the dependence on Reliance is the area of concern. Mudra Max has no big spender in its roster of new clients in a year when most media agencies have made significant gains.
For Mudra Group as a whole, this has been a year of consolidation, with the benefits of the effort being more visible in the advertising agency and in the new specialist units launched.
Perhaps the coming year is whenMadhukar Kamath devotes more time to this division -- which has the potential to be a big contributor to the bottom line.
