Elaborating on CPAI’s mandate to PROSE, Mr. Narinder Wadhwa , National President, CPAI, said, “Over the past year, Team PROSE has successfully delivered on our brief to come up with out-of-the-box solutions and leverage relationships to gain higher visibility for CPAI, besides helping us to tide over many challenges. We believe, their domain expertise will be an invaluable asset going forward, especially during the current times of COVID-19 pandemic when most forms of communications have transformed to digital. With their understanding of the new-age internet and social media platforms, we are confident of achieving our objectives for 2021 to upgrade our digital touch points.”
Speaking about the account win, Ms. Shirley D’Silva, Head of Corporate & Financial services division at PROSE Integrated, said: “Any commodity or stock market stakeholder account like CPAI’s is a niche area for communications and PR servicing. It requires the domain expertise on the workings of the financial markets and a deep understanding of the regulatory framework encompassing Ministry of Finance, RBI, SEBI and APMC markets, which have under their purview thousands of small brokers and large global intermediaries. We specialise in this niche expertise, which is the reason for CPAI reposing its faith on us and assigning their communications mandate again.“
Ms. D’Silva added that CPAI being a not-for-profit organisation, handling the account was a great learning experience for the Team PROSE to get maximum impact within limited resources.
