What Media Says
CEO, Dawn News & Chairman Pakistan Broadcasters Association
From a modest beginning, the agency has emerged as one of the premiere media planning/buying houses with a distinguished PR agency, catering to the needs of various multinationals and blue chips. This is purely because the agency believes in investing in its human resource development and nurturing the talent. The credit also goes to its upfront leadership and dedicated team.
Executive Director, Geo Group
Over the years Media Matters has earned due recognition both in the corporate and media circles. Our experience with the organization has been quite wonderful and it's really good to work with such a professional team. Moreover, Aleem remained pretty successful in heading the agency on the success path.

Diversified exposure in advertising, marketing and PR has evidently strengthened Aleem's understanding and vision for the industry. His team also reflects the expertise induced by the leadership. The agency has always kept up ethical values and shown professionalism.
CEO/President, ARY Digital Network
Ever since I've known Aleem as a friend, he has always been keen in providing his partners with the best solutions with a very good value. His transition from the GM Marketing of a FMCG company to the head of one of the most respected media buying houses in Pakistan is quite natural. No doubt he is a perfect marketer who is constantly evolving and I admire his unmatched approach to brand communication.
I know Aleem not only as the Chief Executive but also as a friend, who keeps a close eye on the industry developments. He is bound to see success with his ability to strategically lead the agency and above all with a well-composed personality. His success in PR after proving his mettle in the media buying industry is indeed a well-planned and tremendous initiative.
Managing Director Jang Media Group & Secretary General, Pakistan Newspapers Society
Aleem is a true marketer who brings passion and energy to work on a daily basis. He does not only understand the value of tactical marketing but also has an equally solid grip on strategic marketing and what it takes to create interest in a product or an idea and translate it to meaningful, tangible business results. He enjoys incredible relationships not only with the Jang Media Group but also in the entire local media industry. He is a straight-up guy, and an absolute pleasure to work with.
CCO, Aaj TV / Business Recorder
Working with Aleem Durrani and his company has been a pleasure; I believe all good media partnerships should be professional, yet passionate and Aleem certainly delivered those qualities both in media buying and public relations domain. Agency is stronger for their involvement, and its success is testimony to their hard work over the years.
