Rai attributes these wins to integration: “In fact, what gives me even more satisfaction is that more than half of these wins have come due to our bringing together a complete end-to-end, integrated solution that is unique to Wunderman Thompson. The seamless and integrated approach has resonated with clients, and as we bring in more global capabilities in Data, Content and E-commerce, I am confident we will win more mandates in the next six months.”
