The Tata Steel win follows a multi-way pitch that saw participation from Initiative Media, Media Direction, TME and Mindshare. The agency bagged the Lafarge Cements account based on a presentation made to the client.
“Our recent pitches have been based on the premise of our recent client practice called ‘Market Contact Planning’, which is a consumer connect strategy that is media neutral,” explained Divya Radhakrishnan (pictured), president, TME. “That it is winning us businesses and being accepted by clients is very exciting for the agency. 2009 has been particularly great for us – this is the 10th new business we have signed up this year.”
