Unruly is the next big thing in APAC. But don’t just take our word for it, ask GroupM.
The world’s largest advertising media company handed Unruly’s Vijay Kunduri the coveted accolade at its annual awards ceremony this week.
The event – launched by GroupM to celebrate the media owner partners it works with in Asia that deliver the most innovative and effective campaigns – was well attended last Friday by the top brass and client leaders of Group M and its agencies.
Agency planners and buying teams were asked to nominate companies they had worked with, and a shortlist was drawn up by an external panel and voted upon by senior executives and staff.
Unruly picked up the The Next Big Thing award for 2014 at the ceremony held at Group M’s Singapore office in Fountain Square.
Unruly’s APAC MD, Phil Townend, said: “We’re honoured to have been awarded this accolade in recognition of our world class platform and product. GroupM teams and clients are among the first to really understand and harness social video as a communications channel here in Asia Pacific and we’re looking forward to working more closely with them into 2015 and beyond.”
Jon Thurlow, CEO of GroupM Singapore, said: “We’re very proud to be able to share the successes of the company with our media partners, and acknowledge the hard work and dedication they’ve put into helping our clients thrive in the region.”
Other companies to win on the night included TubeMogul, which was named ‘Most Innovative Media’ and MediaCorp Pte Ltd for ‘Best Media Sales’.
