Surya Kundu, associate account director, MSLGroup India, has been declared winner of the agency’s (internal) Michael Sullivan Creative Leadership Award, instituted in memory of late North American staffer Michael Sullivan.
The annual Award is given on a rotating basis to each region, 2014 being Asia’s turn to identify a winner. It looks for ‘a creative storyteller who generates big, fresh ideas that excite clients, and employs novel ways to leverage the agency’s offerings to create successful integrated campaigns’.
In this year’s case, the winning campaigns were for client Sony India.
