Sudhaman and Holmes also highlighted the increasingly close working relationships within MSLGROUP, as well as MSLGROUP’s multiple local and multi-market new business wins in the region. Highly-regarded and respected by public relations firms and clients alike, The Holmes Report 2013 Asia-Pacific Consultancy of the Year award is based on its annual consultancy report card, providing analysis and independent profiles of more than 400 public relations firms each year.
Glenn Osaki, Asia President, MSLGROUP, commented on the win: “This is recognition of the many talented people in the region who have chosen to develop their careers at MSLGROUP. We are committed to being the best agency for top talent in the region. This award further enforces that we are on the right track, building an agency with people who make things happen, resulting in top quality advisory and unbound creative solutions for our clients”. “If an agency can be in ‘pole position’, then MSLGROUP in Asia is. Our people, trusted advisors to leading companies and brands, supported by a highly motivated, outstanding management team is why we have recently been awarded with two major Agency of the Year appointments. But the best is yet to come. Our business plan for the region outlines ambitious and aggressive plans in Asia. We will further expand and strengthen our already best-in-class programs for Learning and People Development, and continue to task our colleagues with the skills to deliver strategic advisory and content driven, integrated solutions to engage with our clients’ stake holders. I am honoured to be a part of such an exciting chapter in MSLGROUP’s incredible Asia story.” says Osaki.
