Muscat: Wipro Yardley FZE, the Middle East arm of the consumer products business, a significant player in personal care and home care consumer product segments in the region, has appointed BPG Dubai to lead media planning and buying for its Middle East brand campaigns.
Wipro products have a large consumer base across Arab and Asian communities in the region and navigating this complex space has always been a challenge and an opportunity for growth. The company also has ambitious expansion plans that required an agile, innovative and disruptive partner such as BPG.

With rapidly changing consumer trends in a prolonged disruptive phase, we felt the strong need to bring in a fresh and disruptive perspective. We felt that we had to revisit various aspects of how we communicate with consumers and sharpen the way we reach them in an optimum and impactful manner. We saw this appetite to challenge the status quo in the BPG team. What excited us the most was their strategic approach backed by data and logic. We look forward to this partnership.”
Avi Bhojani, CEO, BPG, added, “Wipro is a well-known brand with great products that deserve to reach every household in the region. It is an innovative company and we share a similar DNA with our ideas-driven approach. We believe in simple yet impactful solutions that work as a huge multiplier for our clients’ efforts.
