VML Qais, Asian arm of the VML network, has been appointed by Mahindra & Mahindra as its digital agency to lead the revamp of Mahindra’s corporate website

The revamp is one of Mahindra’s key initiatives in their journey to become a globally admired brand.

VML Qais and Mahindra have worked together since 2010, with work such as the latter's Rise Blog and ‘Spark the Rise’ created.

“VML Qais has been our partner since the early days of Rise. [The team] has a deep understanding of Mahindra; the brand and the businesses.

“The Mahindra story is truly phenomenal. It started in 1945 with two men on a mission to bring the iconic Jeep onto Indian roads. Today, Mahindra is a multi-billion multinational group with more than 180,000 employees in over 100 countries. Lots happened in-between and will happen in the future and we are excited for the world to see this story brought to life through the new corporate site,," Lochan added.
