Nitin Mantri is Global PR Leader of the Year & Avian Media Top PR Firm at ICCO Global Awards 2015
Avian Media, the specialist communications consultancy, has clinched the coveted title of Independent Consultancy of the Year (APAC) at the ICCO Global Awards 2015 in London on November 26. The company’s CEO, Nitin Mantri, who is also the President of the Public Relations Consultants Association of India (PRCAI), was adjudged Global PR Leader of the Year Award for displaying great leadership and achieving excellent results in moving the industry forward in one of the most challenging markets in the world. Mantri is the first Indian to have won this award.
Nitin Mantri, CEO, Avian Media, said: “We are a homegrown, independent agency and we are proud of our heritage. This gives us the freedom and nimbleness to deliver result-oriented campaigns for our clients. Hence, it is a matter of great honour to win the ‘Independent Consultancy of the Year’ award. This has been a milestone year for us. We have won the ‘Indian Consultancy of the Year’ Award at the 2015 Sabre Awards in September, and now these prestigious awards on a global platform like ICCO, reiterate our belief that Avian Media is on the right path. We owe our success to our hard-working team of employees, our partners who support us, and our clients who trust and encourage us to scale greater heights. These awards will further motivate us to achieve our goal to become ‘The Most Trusted Advocacy Firm in India’.”
Nikhil Khanna, Managing Director, Avian Media, said: “There is no doubt that Nitin is an outstanding professional, but I have always maintained that he should first be viewed as a remarkable leader. His novel approach to PR has set the roadmap for Avian Media’s success. And, the results - two agency of the year awards in the span of two months - are here to see. Nitin has not only charted Avian’s growth, but has been a leader for the profession. As President of the PRCAI, he has championed the cause of PR both at home and at global platforms. I cannot think of a more suitable Global PR Leader of the Year. I am extremely proud and happy for both my agency and its CEO.”
