Saurabh Wahi, Group Vice President, MWW Group As a driving force behind MWW's relationship with flagship consumer client Nikon, Wahi has successfully altered public perception of the brand once seen as "too expensive" through multifaceted campaigns, while increasing market share and camera sales. He also directed Nikon's Four to the Floor Tour, which encompassed five urban markets and showcased the brand and its new products (such as Nikon's Coolpix S51C0) in events featuring live music and top DJs/producers. Partly as a result of Wahi's efforts, Time magazine named the Nikon Coolpix as the second "Best Invention of the Year," following the iPhone. Pied Piper of the Younger Set One of Wahi's specialties is his canny ability to tap into the youthful pulse for Nikon products. For Nikon's Coolpix Style digital cameras, Wahi oversaw a campaign that leveraged pop culture through associations with supermodel Kate Moss, couture designer Zac Posen, the smash reality show Project Runway and VH1's Save the Music Foundation.
