Rasheed Sait, Vice President & Managing Director, George P. Johnson (GPJ) Experience Marketing India, received the 'Indira Excellence Award' for outstanding contribution to the Event Management Industry.
Sait received this award for his leadership and contribution to the Experiential Marketing industry. The award was presented by the Indira group - India's premier education group, on March 2nd, 2013 in Pune. The 'Indira Excellence Award' was presented as a part of the 12th Annual Marketing Excellence Awards.
The 'Indira Excellence Award' also serves as a testimony to Sait's achievements across various domains spanning management, marketing, advertising and experiential marketing.
"I am thankful to the Indira Group for honouring me with this award. I hope to continue my contribution to the marketing and communication industry in the years to come," said Sait.
After a 10-year innings in advertising and with agencies such as Ogilvy and Lintas, Rasheed Sait joined the world's largest experience marketing company, George P Johnson (GPJ), in 2003 as Country Manager. Over the last 10 years, Sait has led GPJ into one of India's leading experience marketing agencies, known for its strategic thinking, award-winning creative and world class execution. Last year GPJ was awarded "India/South Asia Specialist Agency of the Year 2012" by Campaign Asia Pacific for agency expansion, new business growth, client and staff retention and consistently driving business results through "innovative experience marketing solutions".
The theme for this year's Marketing Excellence Awards was Brand Sustainability. The Indira Group presented brands which have sustained over the years, innovating and re-innovating to keep up with the changing times. Companies, despite the ups and downs of the economy, have been able to sustain themselves and support the youth of India to build a sustainable future.
"GPJ is a global case study for agency brands that have sustained over the years. The GPJ brand has not only sustained for 99 years but grown into the world's largest experience marketing agency. This is a tremendous achievement when you look around and see hundreds of event agencies start and close shop every other day," added Sait.
