Chayenne added, “I certainly could not have pulled this off without the dream team comprising my work family, agency partners: Media Compete, IPG, iMoney and VMLY&R Commerce and last but not least, the amazingly talented influencers we got to work with on the launch of our #ExtraNotOrdinary CIMB eCredit Card. Thank you MARKETING Magazine and the sponsors for giving us this platform to step up our game as marketing leaders and hosting us such a warm reception to commemorate our win!”

Meera Muhunthan, the Managing Director of Httpool Malaysia, commented, “Httpool is stoked to be one of the sponsors of the prestigious CMO Awards this year and we thank MARKETING Magazine Malaysia for giving us the opportunity to participate. A huge congratulations to the well-deserving Gold winners! It was really nice to be able to meet everyone face-to-face at the ceremony to present the award as well as casually catch up on things business-wise.”

“2022 is going to be a crucial year for brands to make a huge comeback and with everything the last couple of rather challenging years have taught us, and consumer behaviour having changed quite a bit, it’s going to be exciting to see how brands strategise and execute to meet the needs of their audience in varied ways. As a Global Partner of Premium Platforms, we’re quite intrigued to be working with these brands in helping them meet their business objectives by offering our expertise with the platforms we represent in Malaysia,” added Meera.
