Campaign Score: 7
How TME rates itself: 9
To quote Sir Martin Sorell, “In 2009, flat is the new high.” In such a recessionary year, TME registered a growth over the previous year by adding a long list of seven new clients to its portfolio. The regional strength of TME was established with Kolkata branch growing by six times. All this was achieved by re-moulding the thought process of the organization to be totally media agnostic and taking media planning to an enhanced platform of Market Contact Planning. TME is enabled to deliver solutions by being part of the RYR group which has six specialized practices in its fold. Processes, tools and structure have been re-modeled in this direction to ensure complete focus on the proposition. This thought leadership is ahead of the curve and is already providing results & is geared to take the agency to new heights in the future. TME picked up 5 metals this year across the 2 awards of Media Abbies and Emvies.
