“In this regard, DSA continues to put Dentsu Aegis Network Malaysia at the forefront of sports marketing through our collaborative effort. We look forward to helping clients unlock opportunities created by converging DSA’s sports marketing capabilities with the network’s media, digital and creative communications services, in keeping with our mandate of delivering innovative business propositions for clients,” Nicky shared.
