NGage wins international Brand Leadership award

The Mumbai-based World Marketing Congress recently recognised integrated marketing communications agency NGage Strategic Alliance with the Brand Leadership award.

The World Marketing Congress conducts its annual CMO Asia programmes to recognise Asian organisations, brands, and individuals that have demonstrated excellence in their fields as Best Brands, Best Employers, and Women Leaders.

NGage recently had a leadership succession with Sheron Jayasundara, a 23-year-old stalwart of the company, taking over the reins as CEO, and Nimal Gunewardena redefining his role as the company’s Chairman and Chief Innovator and Strategist. Jayasundara and CFO Chamika Colonne also became members of the company’s Board of Directors, with the Board now mirroring the gender-balanced professional cadre of the agency.

“We are delighted to come on the radar of CMO Asia, which tracks and awards achiever companies through their own research,” said Gunewardena. “Last year, Sheron was recognised by them as a Pioneering Woman Leader, and this year, they have figured out that behind every empowered woman is an empowering employer.”

NGage is a 26-year-old agency in Sri Lanka which was founded by veteran advertising industry professional Nimal Gunewardena, and this is its first award under the new brand.
