“We have chosen Grey not only on the basis of their pitch, but also because of their knowledge and expertise in dealing with product innovators such as Brother,” said Tim Fujimoto, director and general manager of Brother International Singapore. “They proved they have the market and consumer insights we needed.”

Subbaraju Alluri (pictured), CEO at Grey Singapore, added that the agency aims to expand and strengthen Brother's presence in Singapore and across Asia-Pacific.
