Commenting on the wins, Tarun Rai, chief executive officer, J Walter Thompson, says in a press release, “Collaboration between our group companies has been key to winning these new clients. We have diverse companies in the JWT group but the fact that all the CEOs of these companies are part of my leadership team makes collaboration easier. Also, we have a single P&L, unlike some other agency groups, that I am responsible for and it allows us to be focussed on providing the appropriate integrated solution to our clients. We have topped the New Business League charts last year, and we are on our way to doing the same again this year.”
