Varun Dua, Founder and CEO, Acko General Insurance said, "We are all set now and will be starting with automobile insurance. With BBH's help, we have tried to strongly differentiate and introduce Acko as a young and contemporary insurance player."
Vaibhav Manchanda, Head of Brand Strategy and Communication, Acko added, "When we say new age insurance, we mean it. We want to be relevant for today's consumer and make them look at insurance in a new light. Ours is a company that is dynamic, inventive and approachable and that is what you will see in our brand communication as well."
Russell Barrett, Chief Creative Officer and Managing Partner, BBH said, "Acko promises to be a genuinely disruptive player in a rather staid and boring category. We love that. We needed to make a couple of videos that created some "noise" for the brand. If nothing else, these films do that. But I believe they also signal the intent of this hugely exciting brand; to be a young, modern, creative influence in the world of insurance."
Arvind Krishnan, Managing Director, BBH added, "It's great when you have clients who believe in the power of difference. That's our strength, and we're very happy to create a brand that exemplifies this power at every touch point." (ANI-NewsVoir)
