The Vizeum operation, which began in August 2009 in Chennai, has paved the way for Aegis Media India to make larger investments in the market. Aegis Media is moving to a  bigger, state-of-the-art-office that will house Vizeum, Isobar (Digital) Iprospect (Search), Posterscope (OOH) Hyperspace (Retail), Carat  and Carat Fresh Integrated (Activation). The new office is located in Raheja Towers, Anna Salai, Chennai, and will begin functioning from July 2, 2012. Commenting on the development, Ashish Bhasin, Chairman India & CEO South East Asia, Aegis Media, said, “We believe Chennai will be an extremely important market in the years to come and the spectacular success of Vizeum has proven that.  Vizeum has won several businesses and expanded rapidly in Chennai. As part of Aegis Media’s geographical expansion plan, we are very happy to launch Carat Media in Chennai and further strengthen the Posterscope Group and Carat Fresh in Chennai.”

Bhasin added, “We are investing in a world class, state-of-the- art office with the latest systems, technologies and connectivity. Shortly, our clients in Chennai will, perhaps for the first time, have available to them all specialisations under one roof. We will announce the launch of a few more of our services later this year. Our One Aegis promise will from July 2 be available to our clients in Chennai, too.” S Yesudas, Managing Director, Indian Subcontinent, Vizeum, commented, “I have to place on record my appreciation for Team Vizeum Chennai who saw the merit in our story and chucked their other established jobs to join us when we were just beginning. We will stay focused on this market in terms of our investment in our product as well as talent. My gratitude also goes out to each of our clients who have stood by us, with special thanks to Amrutanjan  and Sambhu for being the inspiration for our launch in Chennai.” Kartik Iyer, Managing Director, Carat India, said, “Carat is very happy to be launching in Chennai. Joydeep Raha, Senior VP - South, will oversee Chennai and we are sure that besides Air Asia that we  service from Chennai, we will soon be announcing some more new clients.” Haresh Nayak, Managing Director, Posterscope Group India, commenting on the expansion in Chennai, said, “Posterscope already has a good presence in Chennai. We now intend to add more talent and introduce new services as Posterscope is already witnessing rapid growth there.”
