TV, Digital Opps: New Balance drops creative AOR, review to come?


Subject: traditional, digital, print, social media

Company: Winmo), the Boston-based athletic shoe manufacturer.

Opportunity: Ended its relationship with Arnold Worldwide, creative AOR for the past six years. NB head of corporate communications Amy Dow told AdWeek: “As a global brand, we are evaluating our future agency structure and reviewing our portfolio.” A spokesperson for the company added that it is looking to consolidate its roster of agencies, but declined to verify if it would launch a creative review.

So while a review is up in the air, agency readers with the resources to handle this account should start making introductions. You should also note that Arnold was originally hired, in large part, because of NB CEO Robert DeMartini’s relationship with Arnold, so any connections you can exploit here may be advantageous. 

Currently, PGR Media handles New Balance’s traditional and digital media planning and buying. NB has increased both TV and display spend in 2015, so sellers should definitely reach out in both areas this year, especially if (when) a new creative shop is appointed to launch a new campaign.
