The Gamechanger 2022 South Award for Agency Partners category is conferred on Vijayshree Krishnan, Director, Vermmillion Communications:
- For emerging as a power woman in the Chennai advertising market, standing tall as an example and inspiration for future women leaders from the region.
- For decades of building brands in the region, hence playing a critical role in building independent Vermmillion’s national credentials.
On receiving the award, Krishnan, said, “I would like to thank the Medianews4u team. I would also like to thank my mentors, my peers and colleagues who have been with me for years.
“I think it’s quite a long journey. What I had in my mind when I got into advertising was just to PLAN: P (Perseverance), L (Learning), A (Affirmative) and N (No Big Attitude).
With all the ups and downs I had in advertising, I never even dreamt that one day I would quit advertising. For 30 long years I have been here and I think the reason for me to be here today is all my colleagues who travelled with me for so long. There are people who have travelled with me for 18 years, 15 years and they are my strength and they are my pillars. I dedicate this award to my team.”
