141 Worldwide, the
marketing services division of Bates India, has bagged two new accounts. They are the Apeejay Surrendra Group, including their financial services division, and the Mani Group, a real estate business house.
Confirming this development to agencyfaqs!, Subho Sengupta, group brand director, 141 Worldwide, says, "We have observed that more and more clients are looking for marketing services solutions and the demand is increasing at a huge rate. Our recent wins prove this point yet again because they give us excellent opportunities both in terms of B2B as well as B2C communication."
Renu Kakkar, vice-president, technology and corporate communications, Apeejay Surrendra Group, says, "Till now, Apeejay Surrendra, as a mother brand, has chosen to keep a low profile, as against our sub-brands, such as The Park Hotels, Flurys, Oxford Bookstores, etc. This year, however, we felt the need to change that. 141 Worldwide seemed to best understand our resilient style, which is why they will now work with us on the mother brand."
Kakkar adds, "We were also aiming at a national presence for our financial services division. 141 Worldwide's fresh creative approach to this business ensured that they were retained for both Apeejay Securities and Apeejay Finance."
The second business that 141 Worldwide has won is of the Mani Group, a 25-year-old real estate organisation. The Mani Group has delivered over 1.5 million square feet of developed real estate and is into several major projects. In 2006 alone, the Mani Group will deliver another 1.5 million square feet of prime residential, commercial, retail, IT and entertainment space, bringing its customer base to over 1,000 in number.
Subesh Ray, senior vice-president and head, marketing, Mani Group, says, "We have been following the work of various agencies. We found the abilities of 141 Worldwide to be in line with our perception of communication. With a lot of expectations, we have identified 141 Worldwide to handle our account. We expect them to be thorough professionals and deliver the best, as they have been doing in the past."
For the record, 141 Worldwide is a media-neutral complete solutions provider, with core skills in through-the-line marketing, customer relationship management, trade marketing strategies, event management, promotions, channel activation, retail architecture designing, all under one roof, backed by proprietary techniques, tools and knowledge-sharing across many categories, given its vast worldwide network.
