The Advertising Agencies Association of India today announced that this year’s AAAI Lifetime Achievement Award will be conferred upon Krishan Premnarayen, Senior Partner, Prem Associates Advertising and Marketing. This is the highest honour to be given to an individual in India for his/her outstanding contribution to the Advertising Industry.


Premnarayen was the youngest President of AAAI when he took charge as President in 1988 at the age of 36 years.


Making the announcement, Ashish Bhasin, President, AAAI, said: “Krishan Premnarayen, besides being the youngest ever President, made very significant contributions to the industry. It was during his tenure that the foundation was laid to make AAAI the legitimately recognized body for our industry across constituencies. He must also be given due credit for vastly strengthening AAAI’s relationships with the media industry – including while he was at the helm of ABC and NRSC. He is truly deserving of this honour”


Added Nakul Chopra, Chairman of the AAAI Lifetime Achievement Award Selection Committee: “It gives me immense pleasure that this year’s Committee unanimously decided to confer this richly deserved honour on Krishan. His manifold contributions to the industry have played an important role in helping strengthen both our industry and our Association over many years. Even after he was no longer directly active with AAAI he continued to go out of his way to help, whenever called upon for an industry cause. It is somewhat fitting that he is being conferred an award, the inception of which, dates back to his own tenure as President AAAI. He richly deserves this award, my heartiest congratulations to him.”
