- People First. We are committed to showing our people career paths that are linked to organisational goals.
- Clients for Life. A philosophy that we have ingrained in each and every employee of Avian Media as this will drive how we retain and grow our existing clients and attract new ones who share a similar culture and ambition.
- Business Sustainability. To build long-term sustainability, a company must contribute meaningfully to efforts that take the industry forward.
We keep it simple:
Focus on clients and people.
The rest will follow.
Avian Media started small in a tiny apartment in Delhi in 2004, but our aspirations were and are anything but small. In those days, there were just three people, including our founding member and Managing Director, Nikhil Khanna, our Chase India co-founder Manash Neog, and our Regional Head North, Neha Mehrotra, working silently in a near-empty office. Our first clients – Airbus, the world’s largest airplane manufacturer and Sona Koyo Steering, an ancillary manufacturer for the automotive industry in India – kept us busy enough. In 2006, our CEO, Nitin Mantri, joined the company and set the template for year-on-year growth.
We don’t fancy things up for clients – we tell them like it is and we work hard on deliverables. What sets us apart is the way we have achieved a delicate balance – we have the nimbleness and agility of an independent agency and the experience and expertise you would expect of any world-class agency.
We have stalwarts from all fields on our advisory board who guide and steer our activities, ensuring an honest, ethical and committed work culture at Avian Media.
