Starcom has won the media duties of Nykaa, the Indian multi-brand beauty retailer selling cosmetics
and wellness products. The business was won as part of a hotly contested pitch, in which leading
agency groups participated.
Rathi Gangappa, CEO, Starcom India says, “This is a prestigious win for us. Through innovative ideas and fresh thinking and insights on the brand, we demonstrated strong media value and will help Nykaa
exceed its core marketing KPI’s. We look forward to partnering with Nykaa on their expansion plans
and are committed to their growth and success.”
Hitesh Malhotra, CMO, says, “Starcom brings in a mature team that understands the periphery of beauty and the dynamicity of eCommerce - both of which are sacrosanct to Nykaa. In a fragmented landscape where the consumer’s attention is split across multiple devices, it is imperative that knowledge of omnichannel messaging is delivered through the sheer power of media, partnerships and innovation. Starcom's valuable media inputs, experience and expertise will enhance our brand further; their hunger and startup culture of collaboration truly mirrors our own. We are confident that Starcom will help us unlock new consumer connections and will maximise returns on our media investments.”  
Nykaa is one of India’s leading  e-commerce companies, offering beauty and wellness products. It
also has offline presence. Today, Nykaa sells over 850 curated brands and 35,000 products.
