The media mandate also includes both mainline and digital.
“In our initial conversations with L&K Saatchi & Saatchi, there was a complete alignment on the vision of the brand and their approach to it. This assured us of our choice of a reliable partner. I’m very optimistic of this alliance and can foresee the brand getting the right launchpad for the future,” Gaurav Dua, executive director, Relaxo Footwears said.
“It doesn’t happen often that a company that’s a leading manufacturer in a category parks the entire integrated mandate without a pitch only basis the credentials, chemistry and trust in the team. It puts immense responsibility on us to deliver beyond expectations. Flite, one of the biggest brands in the Relaxo portfolio, has done a tremendous job of creating a segment of its own. As their business partner, our role now will be to make sure that the brand takes a new flight in the minds of the consumers and trade, while achieving a growth trajectory that will propel it in a league of its own,” Paritosh Srivastava, MD, L&K Saatchi & Saatchi said.
