Commenting on the two-way pitch, Alex Andarakis, chief executive officer of Aujan Industries said, “Initiative Media was way ahead in terms of their overall strategic approach to media research, innovation, planning and buying. We look forward to forging a true partnership with the agency over the coming years and believe the team will make a substantial contribution to our business going forward. We have ambitious plans and a clear target in mind and deem the agency capable of supporting us in achieving our objectives”
Currently based in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Aujan’s vision is to expand its operation to the rest of the Middle East, Iran, as well as East and North Africa over the coming years. One of the foundations of the company’s growth is its long association with leading international brands such as Cadbury, Wrigley’s, Pepsi and Lipton International as well as Coca-Cola. Aujan Industries were established in 1905 and thus celebrate their centennial anniversary this year.
“We are particularly pleased to have been awarded this prestigious account and the team is geared towards meeting Aujan’s goals and working with the company on a long-term basis. Our integrated network resources are at the disposal of Aujan for the implementation of their strategy,” said Fadi Salameh, president and chief executive office of the Fortune Promoseven Group.
Initiative Media is one of the region’s leading media buying companies, with 20 offices in 17 countries throughout the Middle East and North Africa.
